Ellen Garland

Lead Pastor's Wife at Epsom Bible Church


Ellen and her husband - the man of her dreams - Ric, reside in Epsom, NH.  For 34 years, the Garlands served a quality group of missionaries throughout the United States with Word of Life Fellowship, Inc., serving as youth coaches at local churches; prompting and training youth leaders in evangelism and discipleship.  Ellen also served as Dean of Women at the Word of Life Bible Institute and co-anchored a Word of Life daily radio program.

Always looking and desiring to follow God’s exciting path of adventure, Ric & Ellen sensed the Lord moving in their hearts.  That path led them to Epsom Bible Church in New Hampshire, where Ric serves as Lead Pastor. Together, they encourage, love on, and guide a gathering of fabulous people.  Their heartbeat is to encourage others to build on Biblical principles.  

Ellen’s passion is for women of all ages to fully grasp a living God.  Her aspiration rests on deep discipleship and the opportunity to ignite others to skillfully apply the Word of God, in order to build a mature personal relationship with the Holy Spirit. She has traveled within the U.S. and abroad, pouring into ladies, as she opens the Word and shares it with energy.

Ric and Ellen have three grown children.  Nicole is married to Bryant.  They reside in Valrico, FL - It’s warm there; Eric resides in Heaven - It’s glorious there; and Shannon is married to Jordan– they reside in Mountain City, TN - it’s beautiful there.  They also have seven adorable grandbabies, 4live in Florida, 2 live in Texas and 1 lives in TN with one more on the way there! We are confident you may hear about them.
