Hello!  I am Joel Aurand and the pastor of the Elkhart Christian Church.  I’m pictured here with my wife, Gail.  The two of us met while studying for our Masters of Divinity degrees at Texas Christian University in Ft. Worth, TX.  We were ordained into Christian ministry in 1985 in Des Moines and have served the Church for over 40 years in Texas, West Virginia, Iowa, Minnesota, and Missouri.  We have three daughters and six grandchildren.  We love living in Elkhart and hope you will choose to join us in worship or one of the other ministry opportunities ECC offers.  We look forward to meeting you!
