Pastor Elliott and His Family

Please allow me the opportunity to take a few minutes of your time and introduce ourselves.  I grew up in a Christian home.  I was saved when I was five years old and when I was eight I surrendered to full-time missions work.  Since that time, my life as been one of preparation to answer the burden that God had given me.  I entered Baptist Bible College (Springfield, Missouri) in the fall of 1992 in the missions program.  Pastor Elliott graduated in the spring of 1996.  I met my wife in 1997 and Lydia and I were married in 1998.  Lydia is a MK (missionary’s kid).  She grew up in England ministering with her parents, Dwane and Janice Baker.  Grandpa Baker passed away in January 2010 and Mom is currently serving with the Baptist Bible Fellowship on the field of Haiti.  She was saved when she was five years old and surrendered to full – time missions work when she was ten.  In November of 1998, I became the Associate Pastor at Brooking Heights Baptist Church in Raytown, Missouri, under Pastor Stephen Jones.  God used this time mightily in our lives, but He never took away the call to full-time missions work.  Also during this time, God also gave us our first child, Eliza in January of 2002.  Esther Pearl, our second, was born on October 13, 2003.  Elijah Andrew was born on October 26, 2005.   After about 2 1/2 years on deputation, we moved to Mongolia in September 2006.  Ethan Peter was born on February 15, 2008.  After a short battle with cancer, Esther passed away on April 2nd, 2010.  In February 2012, God directed us to change fields and we moved to Chuncheon, South Korea.  After moving to Korea, we began language studies.  In early 2013, the Nathan Kowach family moved to Chuncheon to start Chuncheon Lighthouse Baptist Church and we began working together to start Chuncheon Lighthouse Baptist Church.   While we were serving in Chuncheon, God blessed us with two more boys: Evan (March 8th, 2013) and Ezra (November 12, 2014).   During the summer of 2015, God opened the door for us to move to Incheon.  After spending a great time in prayer and fasting, we decided to move to Incheon, South Korea.  Pastor Elliott became the Pastor of IIBC on February 19th, 2017.   We are excited to serve at IIBC and look forward to God doing great things here.  We would like to invite you to come and visit.
