Student Pastor

George Esler

Pastor George joined the staff of FBC Westwego in July 2018 but he and his wife Kelli along with their three daughters, Bethany, Ella, and Danni, have been a part of our church family for many years. George and Kelli are native New Orleanians who relocated to the Westbank shortly after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. They have been married since August 2001.

George graduated from Tulane University in 2003 with a degree in Computer Information Systems, and also currently works as an IT Analyst. He came to faith in Christ in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. He began attending FBC Westwego in 2006 and developed a deep appreciation for apologetics and sound theology. He taught bible studies for several years at all age levels: children, teens, young adult, and adult. He excitedly supported our Student Ministry in multiple ways before finally sensing the call to become its Student Pastor in 2018.

George’s hobbies include reading, writing, and weightlifting.
