Aaron and Courtney Ellis

Aaron and Courtney first met in 2011 at one of Simple Truth’s Bible discussions at the University of Kansas. There, they developed their relationship with one another and learned of their passion for Christ. Over the last 7 years they have individually interned for the ministry. Since their marriage in 2015 they’ve worked with the mission of building the Kingdom of God through Young Professional Ministries, first in Wichita and now in Lawrence. In 2017 Aaron and Courtney returned to Lawrence where outside of the ministry, Aaron works as a Design Engineer and Courtney works as a Reading and Math Instructional Support Aide.
