Why Ministry Matters with Gregory Ellison FTE Fellow (’03, ’04, ’05, ’07)

“Questions of hope and despair, psychology and theology—that's why I’m in Pastoral Theology.”

Gregory tells the story of a young lady he knew in college who called him one day and asked “What does God think about suicide?” He is still deeply affected by her desire to take her own life, but this sad and painful memory also drives him to do better work. Through years of learning and growing with FTE, Gregory continues to employ his natural ability to listen and counsel others.
