About Us

Welcome to El Shaddai Christian Fellowship, and may God richly bless you in everything you set your hand to.

Our Mission

ESCF was founded on the principle that we can know what the will of God is, because God’s will is His word. Pastors Jan and Ken strive to teach the Word in simplicity and understanding so that it can be applied to everyday life. As it says in James 1:22, “We are to be doers of the Word, not hearers only.” It is our covenant promise to you that we will preach the unadulterated Word of God until the day that Jesus returns for His glorified church. You’ll find that ESCF is a place to worship with your whole heart. Diligently seek after the truth of God’s Word and be fed the solid food of the Gospel taken straight out of the written Word of God. We welcome you to join us in the pursuit of wisdom, glory, and everlasting life!

MEET PASTOR JAN

From farmland, to God’s land

Finding Her Way

Pastor Jan grew up on a farm in rural Wisconsin with eight siblings. Although she attended church every Sunday with her family, she never connected with God or understood how the Bible related to her everyday life. She came to understand church to be a weekly obligation that resulted in a ticket to heaven. Pastor Jan, a mother of three young children and by her mid twenties, was a heavy smoker, an alcoholic, and suffered from recurrent nervous breakdowns.

At 34 years old, Pastor Jan reached a turning point in her life when she first heard of God as being a wonderful and loving Father. She felt God was a mean, disconnected, and scornful God, who was always ready to punish sin and bad behavior. The message of a loving and caring God moved her and without really knowing what she was doing, Pastor Jan followed the leading of the still, small voice and asked Jesus to come into her heart.

Twenty Years of Service

For the next twenty years, Pastor Jan continued to attend church and Bible studies, seeking an understanding of what the Bible really meant. Although she didn’t always understand what she was reading, she continued to labor in reference books, dictionaries and concordances to get an understanding of the Word of God. Pastor Jan led a women’s Bible study for several years before pursuing pastoral ministry. Pastor Jan studied under Dr. Frederick K. C. Price and received her license to Pastor. She has been serving as the Senior Pastor of El Shaddai Christian Fellowship since 2003.

El Shaddai Christian Fellowship is a covenant partner with Creflo Dollar Ministries, Kenneth Copeland Ministries, and a member of the Creflo Dollar Ministerial Association.

Pastor Jan has been married to her husband Kenny for over 45 years. Together they have 3 children and 7 grandchildren.
