Barnett, Ellen

Serving in Mexico | Acct # 10503


Ellen is a native Tennessean who also claims North Carolina as home. She studied elementary education at Wheaton College and received her M.A. in biblical studies from Covenant Seminary. She doesn’t remember a time she didn’t know Jesus as her loving friend, and trusted in Him as Lord and Savior before age five.

As a result of early contacts with missionaries, Ellen felt the only reasonable response to the Lord´s work in her life was to serve Him in missions. In her teens she reexamined that desire in light of her fears and limitations, but the Lord reconfirmed her decision as she trusted in His power for His work.

Ellen has served in Acapulco since 1975 with MTW. Her ministry has included Bible studies; work with children, youth, and singles; and leadership training in Acapulco and Guerrero State. Ellen´s present responsibilities include administering and teaching in Maranatha Bible Institute and teacher-training seminars throughout Mexico. She especially enjoys discipling young people through these ministries.

Ellen was a founding member of New Horizon Christian School in 2000 and has continued on the board ever since. She is involved in finding resources for development, strategic training for the staff and board, and fundraising.
