Tom Ellsworth

Retiring Senior Ministeroffice: 812.334.0206, x201

Focused. Optimistic. Loyal.

Tom has been the senior minister at Sherwood Oaks since January 10, 1981. He and wife Elsie moved to Bloomington settled into a good life in the Big 10 college town. He and Elsie have been married for 40 years and have two wonderful daughters, two terrific sons-in-law and six awesome grandchildren - pure joy!

When he's not at Sherwood Oaks, you're likely to find Tom in the woods behind his house, spending time with his family and building memories with his grandchildren. His favorite places to visit are the majestic scenes of God's creation and historical sites and battlefields. He loves a good Jack Reacher novel and relaxes by watching NCIS. His hobbies are woodworking, flying and tinkering with his 1929 Ford Model A.

Tom is in the process of retiring from Sherwood Oaks and fulltime ministry.
