Elliot Sands

In 2004 Elliot joined our staff as Pastor of Business Administration for Church on the Hill and Achiever Christian School. Since then, he has taken on additional responsibilities including directing the Mission Action Council (MAC), leading the Global Outreach (GO) Teams, heading up construction projects, and anything else that Pastor Scott throws his way.

Elliot continues to remain very active in mission trips where he and his family can serve together.  He also enjoys cooking, jogging, and watching baseball and football.  Elliot and his wife Penny do pre-marital counseling at the church and enjoy leading classes on Sunday mornings.  The couple has two grown kids and one young daughter at home.  Anika, 8, loves cooking, throwing the ball around, and building rockets with her dad.      

Although Elliot grew up in Livermore, he attended High School in Nigeria while his parents served there as missionaries.  Elliot returned to California and earned his Bachelor's degree in Religious Studies from Westmont College and then his MBA from San Jose State University. Later he attended Western Seminary where he earned his Master’s in Divinity.
