Ernest Witmer is an ordained minister in the Mennonite church. For over twenty-five years he has pastored churches in northern Minnesota and southern California where he now resides with his family in the Los Angeles community of Highland Park. He lost his wife Rachel—his bride of 28 years and 17 days—in a tragic car accident on the weekend of their second son’s wedding in November 2012. Ernest and Rachel have five adult children: Carita, Marcel (wife Krista and son Judah), Asher (wife Teresa and sons Kenaz and Adrion), Kristi, and Christopher. His children and three grand-buddies are his constant delight.
Teaching from the Scriptures about marriage and family is a favorite for Ernest. He teaches in Bible schools, as well as church and youth camp settings, and does itinerant work in churches throughout the United States and in some foreign contexts. Ernest is an avid Facebook contributor and has written for Sunday school publications and Christian school curricula. Not the least of all, Ernest loves to mentor men. He will give whatever time it takes to encourage fathers and sons, husbands, divorcees and their children to follow in the footsteps of Jesus to become sacrificial servant leaders in their homes, church, and communities.
Asher Witmer lives with his wife and three sons in Southern California where they serve with their church, LA ROAD., and are in the middle of obtaining a Bachelor’s of Biblical Studies degree from Eternity Bible College.
