About Pastor Robert V. Ellson  
Bob and his wife Jill come to the UMC of Mt Pleasant after first attending, then serving at the First United Methodist Church in Murrysville. After an enjoyable and rewarding business career, Pastor Bob answered God's call into full time vocational ministry 15 years ago. Walking through the process towards ordination and being nurtured by his home church has been a joy and a blessing. Bob and Jill look forward to the next chapter in their ministry together serving God with the good people at the United Methodist Church of Mt Pleasant.
Bob has a BA and an MBA degree from Robert Morris University and a Master of Divinity degree from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. His wife Jill earned both a Bachelor's and Master of Science degree at Indiana University of Pennsylvania in speech pathology and audiology. She is currently employed as a speech therapist in early childhood intervention for a human services organization in Pittsburgh. Bob and Jill have two adult children, Cassandra and Joshua, and their daughter-in-law, Frankie.
