Brief Bio of Apostle Jimmie A. Ellis III

Raised in the Mount Olive Apostolic Church, under the pastorship of Dr. John Myers, Apostle Jimmie A. Ellis III accepted Jesus at the age of nine. By age twelve, Apostle Ellis began teaching Bible study. In 1983, he was released to pastor. He then founded the Bible Enlightenment Christian Center with just 7 members. Today that humble beginning is known as Victory Christian Center, a thriving ministry located in the heart of Southwest Philadelphia with a membership of over 2,000. Today, Apostle Ellis is under the covering of Bishop Don Meares of Evangel Temple in Upper Marlboro, MD.

Having a heart for leaders, Apostle Ellis established the Victory Fellowship of Local Churches to provide pastors with mentoring, building church leadership and forming a network of covenant relationships with like-minded men and women of God. His annual leadership conferences and workshops are highly demanded. He has also ordained and fathered several men and women into their own ministries (see listing on left of this page).

In 1985, Apostle Ellis founded Arnaz Ministries School of the Word Bible Institute. As Founder and President, Apostle Ellis designed a curriculum to train individuals called to a five-fold ministry, the ministry of counseling, and those who desire an in-depth study of the Word of God for spiritual fulfillment. Today, the two-year program offers a variety of selective and innovative courses conducive to developing church leaders.

In 1999, Apostle Ellis founded The Conquerors Community Development Corporation (CCDC), a mission designed to elevate the quality of life for the Southwest Philadelphia community through economic development, child development, technological awareness, spiritual/cultural programs and health initiatives. Apostle Ellis' vision is to further institute employment services, daycare services, housing and community revitalization programs, health-related projects and life skills to empower the community.

In March 2004, Apostle Ellis received his honorary Doctorate of Divinity Degree from Saint Thomas Christian College in Jacksonville, Florida. Additionally, he is the author of nine books and the Founder and CEO of the Arnaz Publishing Group. Dr. Ellis' contributions have been applauded throughout the city by the media, governing officials and with numerous awards.
Dr. Ellis strives with diligence to labor for his Heavenly Father as he believes, the "Best Is Yet To Come!"
