Pastors Sheldon and Sarah Riley were married in 1998 and began their ministry shortly after. They have three beautiful children: Jordan, Jenna, and Jayce. Their hearts and passion to see people have a close relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ drives them to reach out to a lost generation. Starting out as youth pastors in Levelland, TX, God began to cultivate their ministry to be lead pastors one day by teaching them every area of ministry in the local church. They have served as a youth pastors, music ministers, associate pastor, and lead pastor. Becoming the lead pastor in Dierks, AR and then in Woodward, OK, God began to prepare them to come to Midland, TX. Pastor Sheldon was installed as the lead pastor of Elevate Church in September 2013, starting with an average attendance of 75. Since then, God has added to the church every week. Pastor Sheldon challenges the congregation with his aggressive style of ministry to let their past go and grab a hold of the bright future that God has planned for their life
