Pastor Nathan Ellingwood
The youngest son of Pastors George and Dotty, and born in Rhode Island, Nathan serves as the children's pastor for ages K-6th grade and one of the worship leaders at Genesis Church. He is a graduate from the Eastern Connecticut University with a Bachelors in teaching and history. Prior to helping his parents plant RI Genesis Church, Nathan served on the youth ministry & worship team in Bloomington Genesis Church. Raised in the church, he has spent the past 30 years growing in ministry. He has a heart sensitive to the Lord and carries that when leading worship.

His heart for children comes from his own experience of growing up in a godly home and seeing God move in all the places his parents served in ministry.
