Chris Ellman

Chris and his wife, Carrie, have four children. He’s proud to have called Kansas City his home since 2001. He and his family attend Our Lady of the Presentation and are also members of the Heart of the Redeemer Covenant Community.

After earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Truman State University, he attended the University of Kansas School of Social Welfare and was awarded a Master’s Degree in Social Work in 2003. Since then, he has worked for a hospice organization, a large hospital, and even spent a number of years as a Financial Advisor.

Chris considers it an honor to be invited into his clients’ stories. Ever since he was young, he’s had a desire to engage others on a deep emotional level. He marvels at the strength and resilience of his clients, despite their seemingly insurmountable obstacles and suffering. Also, he has borne witness to what happens when his clients commit to doing the difficult and messy work of healing.

In his free time he enjoys spending time with his wife and children and reading anything by G.K. Chesterton, C.S. Lewis, and J.R.R. Tolkien. He’s also an avid reptile enthusiast, a Star Wars fan, enjoys going to concerts, and playing the drums.
