Ben Ellis was a teacher at Christ Presbyterian Academy in Nashville, Tennessee. Ellis was diagnosed with esophageal cancer at the end 2016. When students and faculty learned Ellis had decided to discontinue cancer treatment, they wanted to do something special for him. 400 students and faculty members left their classrooms and loaded into school buses headed for Ellis’ house. They wanted to worship with him.
Country singer, Tim McGraw, posted the video to his Facebook page, and it currently has over 31 million views.
a friend sent this to me today. Ben Ellis is a Nashville area high school teacher battling cancer. The entire student body (400+ students plus HS faculty) drove to his house to worship with him. Our thoughts and Prayers are with him and his family….. So precious and kind.
A few days after he worshiped with students and a faculty who adored him, Ellis lost his battle with cancer. Ellis leaves behind a wife and five children.
