Dustin and Sherri Ellington
About Our Partners
First appointed as mission coworkers in January 2005 and assigned to serve at the Evangelical Theological Seminary in Cairo, Dustin and Sherri were reassigned in 2010 to serve at Justo Mwale University in Lusaka, Zambia, where Dustin teaches New Testament and Biblical Interpretation. He helps train pastors in the basic Bachelor of Theology program and has also taken responsibility for teaching in the new Master’s in Theology program. In a recent update Dustin writes, “It may seem odd that our graduating students here 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. 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 Bachelor program and another 123 graduates of short-term distance and semi-residential programs.” Dustin and Sherri, who serves as a coordinator with the PC(USA) Young Adult Volunteer program, have two sons, Clayton who is now in college here in the U.S.A. and Christopher who is with them in Zambia.
The biggest request we get from our partners is: “Help us train our leaders.” Dustin and Sherri Ellington are equipping leaders for the African churches through their ministry at Justo Mwale University, one of the most important schools in the region.
The Outreach Foundation is seeking gifts totaling $10,000 for the Ellingtons’ support and $5,500 per student per year for scholarships at Justo Mwale University.
