ROOTED AND GROUNDED IN JESUS: God’s Design for Sexuality
Our life IS Christ! This gospel of grace explains how our “union” with Jesus really does alter everything about us, because in Him alone we are rooted and grounded in truth. These wonderful promises are meant to radically change the way we do life and relationships in the midst of an often painful, temptation-filled world. God gives us wisdom and truth to understand and live out godliness in our sexuality and in our relationships…and it’s so much better than mere “do’s” and “don’ts”! Scripture describes how daily ‘death’ to self, enables the life of Christ to be evident in our thoughts, desires and relationships; and also how to wisely battle against the temptation of false comforts such as the idolatry of sexual and relational sin.

Ellen oversees the Harvest USA Philadelphia office’s ministry to women. Her ministry is focused on discipleship with women who are struggling with sexual and relational sins in their own lives, as well as women who are impacted by the sexual sins of their spouses or others. Ellen is available to teach, equip and encourage others (churches, organizations) to become more effective in ministering the gospel of Christ into the midst of all aspects of sexual brokenness.

She was a missionary in Romania and served on a church staff prior to coming to HARVEST USA in 2007. She has a MA in Biblical Studies from Covenant Theological Seminary, and a Graduate Certificate in Biblical Counseling through the Christian Counseling and Education Foundation in Glenside, PA. Ellen is zealous to help women grow in grace through a deepening relationship with Jesus Christ and the Word of God.
