Pastor Markus Ehrich // Senior Pastor

Markus Ehrich serves as the Senior Pastor here at Word Fellowship Church. Pastor Markus came to Word Fellowship in 2002, along with his wife Susie and their 2 children, Michael and Jessica, after God called him to move his pastoral ministry here to New Jersey.

Pastor Markus’ life and ministry are characterized by his deep love Jesus, his passion for signs and wonders through the gifts of the Holy Spirit and his encounters with the Father. His desire for South Jersey and beyond is to see the broken-hearted healed and restored and to see people maturing in Christ, living out joy-filled, sold out relationships with Him. His ministry is further defined by teaching with practical application, leadership training,  personal discipleship and passionate worship.

Born in Germany and raised on the mission field in South America for 17 years, Pastor Markus has a degree in Business Administration and a Bachelor of Theology Degree from LIFE Bible College. He has pastored churches in Germany, California, Oregon and New Jersey.

Pastor Markus encourages people daily, through patience and kindness, to find a life with purpose in Christ.
