Ethan Quimby was born in Gallup, NM, and lived in Fort Defiance, AZ, Anaheim, CA, Rockledge, FL, and a number of other places before moving to Farmington, NM in 2005, where he has lived since.

He received his ministry training at Grace Hill Church, in Farmington, NM, after which the plan was to plant a church. However, with church planting delayed through a series of events, he decided that sustainable ministry would be found at Higher Ground by teaming up with Josh Valdez.

Ethan has a deep desire to see the lost in our area transformed through the power of the Gospel, and to see all Christians trained to follow Jesus. He longs to see all people become worshipers of Jesus, to see our broken world renewed by the hand of God.

Ethan is married to Gabby, who sings and plays violin on the HGC Worship Team.
