Ronaldo and Kelli Ghenov with their boys, Titus and Judah.

I am excited to announce that Ronaldo Ghenov has accepted the call to serve as our new East Side Campus Pastor. Ronaldo and his wife Kelli had an opportunity to meet with several staff members and the East Side advisory committee in late June. It was very clear that they would be an excellent fit with epikos culture and Milwaukee in general. He will be starting officially sometime in August.

Ronaldo was born in São Paulo, Brazil and at age 11, moved with his family to the East Coast.  In 2013, he became the lead pastor of First Baptist Church of Doylestown in Pennsylvania, where he had been on staff since 2010. In his spare time, Ronaldo enjoys coffee, reading, and Brazilian soccer.

Kelli was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She graduated from Stevens Point, then served on staff with CRU for 1 year before relocating to Pennsylvania to marry Ronaldo. Kelli is passionate about pointing women to Jesus and shares Ronaldo’s love for coffee, books, and soccer. Together they have two boys; Judah (5) and Titus (3). Ronaldo and Kelli are marveling at God’s work of bringing them from Philadelphia to join epikos in Milwaukee.

Please join me in praying for their transition to Milwaukee. In any move, there are numerous details and trials. They are closing on the sale of their home in PA and working with an agent to purchase a home on the East Side. Pray for provision, protection, joy and wisdom. Praise God for how he is growing our staff team.

For the Kingdom,
Pastor Dave Tilma


  1. So happy to hear this! Welcome Ghenov family! We pray you will feel at home with us right away! Praying for transitions and moving graces… 🙂

  2. Wow, you all are so lucky. God has blessed Ronaldo beyond belief, when I met him in college I knew his love for the Lord would take him to great heights.. His charisma, humor, and passion is God given and he is everything he claims to be. His gifts from God in teaching and relating to our world but not being of our world are inspirational.

    Praise God!!!! We will be praying for you Ro. I’ll buy your plane ticket with the Eagles win their 2nd Superbowl and we will go to the parade together. God Bless.
