Dustin and Sherri Ellington


Dustin and Sherri Ellington were appointed mission co-workers in January 2005 and assigned to Egypt to work with the Evangelical Theological Seminary in Cairo (ETSC), where Dustin taught New Testament. In 2010, they were assigned to Lusaka, Zambia. Dustin serves as a professor of New Testament and Biblical interpretation at Justo Mwale University. He helps train pastors for the Zambian church and also teaches in Justo Mwale’s fledgling master’s degree program, which is designed to help Christian leaders in the region receive advanced training while continuing to live in an African context.

Dustin enjoys his ministry at Justo Mwale. In his recent update, he reports:

“From an American perspective it may seem odd that our graduating students here at Justo Mwale University finish their coursework in November, begin serving a congregation, and then come back in May to graduate. For me and Sherri, though, the timing is a blessing, as it affords us a wonderful chance to connect with graduates who have been away ministering for several months. The graduation was a festive occasion, with fourteen students graduating from our main full-time bachelor of theology program and another 123 graduates of short-term distance and semi-residential programs.”

Dustin and Sherri have two young sons, Clayton and Christopher.

Minimum goal for 2016
