Rev. Dr. Benjamin Ellis has been Pastor of Sun City United Methodist Church since July 1, 2018.

I am the senior pastor at Sun City United Methodist Church and I hope to get to know you over the coming months and years. My wife, Theresa, shares this ministry with me. Together, we pray that SCUMC will be a blessing in your life.

SCUMC has been blessed with people from a wide variety of churches, so we come together bringing different styles and traditions. This is possible because we take seriously Paul’s understanding that our oneness in Christ transcends all human barriers. Our worship is basically traditional but we also have various forms of art and activities of praise. We are able to joyfully share for we worship One God together.

Theresa and I believe in the presence and power of the living Christ, and that there is nothing in life as important as walking each day humbly and gratefully with God. I enjoy studying the Scriptures and sharing with others our thoughts and experiences in the life of faith. Theresa is a professor at the University of Redlands where she teaches on environmental issues and this is a value we share. Our hope is that you will find Sun City UMC to be a place of growth in both the mind and in God’s Holy Spirit as we all share together.
