Ellis R. Hodge
Born and raised in Valdosta, Georgia, Apostle Ellis R. Hodge has always been committed to achieving excellence.  As an enlisted member of the U.S. Air Force, he faithfully served for 4 years. Later Apostle Hodge re-enlisted as an Air Force Reservist until retiring in 1994.  He was also employed by GTE (Verizon) for more than 25 years.

Since his call to ministry, Apostle Hodge has traveled to southeast Africa ministering God’s Word and power.  He has also spearheaded several projects, including the Call the Man Home Ministry (2005-2012), E.R.H. Bible Crusade Ministries, Inc., and Life Christian University (Pinellas Campus).  In addition, he serves on the Board of Directors for Lighthouse of Pinellas and Becoming God’s Man.  He also volunteers with Somebody Cares Tampa Bay, the St. Petersburg Citizens Review Committee, and the Naomi and Titus 2 Covenant Alliance Ministries, Inc..

To date, Apostle Hodge ministers to numerous people locally and abroad (via the Internet).  Apostle Hodge’s goal is to empower believers by teaching them the WORD OF GOD in a format they can understand and apply to their everyday lives.
