Elias Sarber

FROM THE BIOGRAPHICAL HISTORY OF PRIMITIVE OR OLD SCHOOL BAPTIST BY DAVID MONTGOMERY AND MARK GREEN.

 

Elder Sarber was born in Marshall  County, Indiana, on November 18, 1913, to  Josiah Menno and Ida Pearl Sarber. At about  21 years of age, he felt the blessings of the Lord in his life and united with the Tippecanoe Church on July 1, 1934.

In October of 1938, Brother Sarber married Sister Laura Fern Gordon of  Nappanee. Sister Sarber passed from this life on December 25, 1962, from injuries suffered in an auto accident. Born to this union were three children, Kenneth, Shirley, and Tommy, all who live in the Nappanee area.

On June 30, 1940, Brother Elias was ordained to the gospel ministry at the Tippecanoe Church. He has traveled extensively among Primitive Baptist Churches in many areas, not only visiting among the Indiana churches, but also in Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, West Virginia, Virginia, Florida, and Georgia. He is well known and well respected among Primitive Baptists in many areas of this country.

Elder Sarber has officiated dozens of weddings, probably over 200 funerals, and many baptisms in his life. He has also served a number of churches in northern Indiana, including Providence  near Nappanee, Pilgrim's Rest near Etna Green, Tippecanoe near Bourbon, and Shiloh near Elkhart.
