Hello to you all!

Thanks for visiting our website and for your interest in our lives. Owen and I have been working with Youth With A Mission for over 25 years. It has been our joy to serve the Lord in various contexts with YWAM, located both in Darwin, and Perth in Australia.

We have done many different things through the years, but all with the aim of showing the world who God is and what He is like.

Psalm 96 is a great declaration of our heart for this:the least, the lost, and the last. 

Sing to the Lord, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day.
Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.

Our heart and effort go into this very thing – that the Lord would be known for who He really is around the earth.

This website is a place where we hope we can connect in a more personal way.  There are a few pages we have made already, but more to come.

Please feel free to connect with us through one of the options on the contact page.  (Contact Page)

We would love to hear from you!

Much love – Jen and Owen Ellis

What a joy it has been to raise our family in a missions context. They have been given so much that we could never buy and we are so grateful to the Lord for His grace over their lives, and ours as their parents.


We count it a privilege to work in missions as part of a team!
