Tyler Ellis was born in 1980 and grew up in Portland, OR. At eighteen, he enrolled in a 2.5 year apprentice missionary program called AIM (Adventures In Missions) that allowed him to serve in Western Samoa and Sydney, Australia. While overseas, he discovered a passion for missions, and helping others sort through life’s biggest questions. After his apprenticeship, he worked on staff with AIM for three years while acquiring a degree in Biblical Studies.
Tyler has been a Campus Minister since 2004. He began by planting a campus ministry at Northern Arizona University that remains today. While living in Flagstaff, AZ, he met Jennifer on eHarmony. After getting married in 2009, Tyler and his wife moved to Newark, DE, where they now live with their daughter and serve at the University of Delaware.
Tyler is on the board of Campus Crosswalk. He has also been a speaker at several church camps, youth rallies and conferences hosted at colleges including Pepperdine University, Cascade College, Southern Methodist University, Lipscomb University, Harding University, and Texas Tech University.
In his free time, he enjoys doing art and photography, playing disc golf and racquetball, and exploring new places with family and friends.
