About Jeremy Ellis

Born at just 26 weeks gestation, by God’s sweet grace South African native Jeremy Ellis survived. There is no doubt that God had a plan to use this future singer/songwriter’s life. Through the experience of growing up in 5 different countries, Jeremy realized that there is no better way to unite the hearts of people than through the language of music. Jeremy is passionate about publishing God’s message of salvation and hope to all who will hear it.

Jeremy led worship for small Bible studies throughout his time studying music in college. After transferring to a small Christian college connected to his local church, one of his teachers became a dear mentor. At his wedding, Jeremy sang an original song to his bride, Lauren. His mentor who was officiating instantly knew that Jeremy was his future worship leader. A year later in 2009 Jeremy & Lauren joined a team of church planters in rural North Idaho. The church plant took off on the very first Sunday, and Jeremy was shocked to find that he was standing in front of a microphone holding his guitar, and looking out at a crowd of 200 people gathered to worship. It was a far cry from a college Bible study, and Jeremy’s journey in growing as a worship leader was one of baptism by fire.
Answering this call to ministry led to so many God-given opportunities. Jeremy crossed paths with Daniel Ornellas, a member of the powerhouse worship trio, Tree63. Daniel Ornellas recognized Jeremy’s passion and talent to serve the church as a songwriter and produced Jeremy’s first EP, “Seen & Heard,” in November 2012. Jeremy has continued to faithfully serve the local church as a worship pastor, and in 2017 after graduating from 10,000 Fathers Worship School he had the privilege of co-writing and recording a song called “Hunger and Thirst” with Aaron Keyes and the 10,000 Fathers community.

Jeremy’s songs are born out of the overflow of pursuit after God, being hungry and thirsty for more of God and less of self. Jeremy desires that people truly see & hear Jesus through every song and lyric he ever records or publishes. Burdened with the realities of what breaks God’s own heart—the lost and the needy—Jeremy’s vision is to use music as a means to support both local and global missions.

Currently living in Post Falls, Idaho with his beautiful family, Jeremy is serving Jesus amongst the body of believers at Real Life Ministries, pursuing his master’s degree in worship through Northern Seminary, and blogs and shares live devotionals via a platform he has recently started called Influential Worship.
