Installed Two New Elders at the Short North
Patrick Knable was installed as an elder at the Short North congregation on April 24th. Here is a little bit about him.
Patrick was born and raised in Akron, Ohio. He was blessed to grow up in family that was rooted in the gospel. At an early age he trusted in the work of Christ and put his faith in Him. Late in Patrick’s high school years he took on a leadership role for his church’s youth ministry. In 2004 he moved to Columbus to attend Ohio State University and became very involved in a church on campus. Through a hard time finding direction and focus in college, God showed Patrick his need to rely on Him. Patrick married his wife, Ashlee, in 2006 and they began attending Veritas in in March of 2009. Together, Patrick and Ashlee have served Veritas by leading the connect ministry for a time both at the Short North Congregation and Tri-Village as well as leading a community group for the last six years. Patrick and Ashlee live in the Weinland Park neighborhood with their son Ellis and daughter Mera.
Christopher Stollar was installed as an elder at the Short North congregation on December 11th. Here is a little bit about him.
Christopher Stollar and his wife Natalie have been members of Veritas for about seven years. They led a community group for five years, but recently stepped down to shepherd several other group leaders as part of the eldership process. Stollar is passionate about seeing the power of the Gospel transform the hearts of men, especially those who are addicted to pornography and other forms of sexual slavery. He has seen that power at work first hand in men he has mentored as both a board member of UNCHAINED and the Demand Reduction Coordinator for She Has A Name. As a former reporter with a master’s degree in journalism, Christopher now works full time as a public relations consultant for Nationwide. He is also the author of The Black Lens, a dark literary thriller that exposes the underbelly of sex trafficking in rural America. Christopher and Natalie live in Clintonville with their two children, Aria Rose and Corban Ray. Aria just turned 3, and Corban is 6 months old. They have loved being members of Veritas and look forward to this new journey as a family.
