ARUMC Global Ministry Missionary Announced

The Arkansas Conference has a new missionary to call their own! In February, through collaboration with Global Ministries, a draft was held to find the perfect fit. The missionary draft allows conferences to draft (or select) new and under-supported missionaries to partner with. Our commitment is to make new connections in our conference by offering this missionary to those churches and individuals looking for new missionary relationships.

As your Arkansas Conference Secretary Global Ministries, I have selected Ellyn Dubberly, currently serving in El Salvador as an English as a Second Language teacher at Colegio Metodista, the first and only Methodist School in El Salvador. With a focus on Children’s Ministries, she serves 500 students from Pre-K through High School.  Ellyn also serves as the Coordinator of Christian Education for the Evangelical Methodist Church in El Salvador where she trains and equips Sunday School teachers at all 13 Methodist Churches.

Violence and corruption run deep in El Salvador which has a huge impact on Salvadoran youth. Ellyn believes a good education is one way to work towards a safer future.  It’s a way of providing young people the tools they need to have a life different from one of violence and corruption.
