Charles H. Ellis III was born in Chicago, Illinois. He was just a youngster when his family moved to Detroit. He grew up in the church where his father, Bishop David Ellis, was pastor, Greater Grace Temple of the Apostolic Faith. He attended Detroit’s Mumford High School and later went on to Wayne State University, where he graduated with an Accounting degree. After working as an accountant for several years, Charles Ellis and GGT Trustee Martin Hardy became the church’s main financial administrators. Ellis would also work beside his father as the Assistant Pastor. After Bishop David Ellis’ death in 1996, then Elder Charles Ellis became pastor of Greater Grace Temple. Only a few years after assuming this role of leadership, he was appointed to the office of Bishop, becoming the second-youngest bishop in the history of the 1.3 million-member Pentecostal Assemblies of the World, Inc.(PAW).
