About Our Pastor

Pastor Eldon L. Ash is an Ordained Bishop with the Church of God in Cleveland, Tennessee.  He was raised in Northwest Indiana, and comes from 3 generations of Church of God Leaders.  His grandfather, grandmother, father, and 3 brothers were all deeply rooted in Church of God ministry.  Pastor Ash earned his pastoral degrees at Lee University and Southwest Bible College and Seminary.  Outside of the clergy, he was a professional crane operator with Operating Engineers before he retired.

Pastor Ash served for over 25 years in 5 different ministries in Indiana, Idaho, Florida, and Wyoming before being called to NewLife Church in March 2017.  He is joined by his wife, Sister Christine, to whom he has been married for 44 years.  Christine is also an Ordained Minister with the Church of God.  She holds a B.S. from Indiana State University, a M.S. from Purdue University, and is a retired high school teacher.  The 2 have a son, Eldon, who lives in Gig Harbor, WA, and a daughter, Elizabeth, who lives in Vero Beach, FL.  Between the 2 children and their spouses, the Ashes are proud grandparents of 4 grandchildren.

In Pastor Ash’s own words, "On December 31, 2016, God gave me a vision to cross over to 2017 and take back what Satan has stolen:  'CROSS OVER TO TAKE OVER'.  I believe that the Spirit of the Lord was speaking to my heart to announce to the body of Christ to take back what has been stolen, ten-fold.  God opened the door for my wife and me to come to Deerfield Beach, so that we can join with the congregation to start a 'new life' at NewLife Church of God.  What a Godly appointment, opportunity, and revelation.  Please come and join us as we journey to cross over to take over as He leads us."
