Tim & Tara Ellis | Wycliffe Bible Translators
The Wycliffe Ministry of

Tim & Tara Ellis

The Ellis family of four is following God as He leads them on a journey that is beyond anything they would ever imagine. They serve in the beautiful and diverse country of Papua New Guinea (PNG) supporting Bible Translation needs for the over 800 languages in the country, including approximately 300 that still do not have access to a single word of scripture in their mother tongue.

Tim serves as the manager for the Communication & Technical Services (CTS) department. CTS is responsible software development, network administration, technical help desk, computer and electronic repair, telecommunications, and anything else required to keep our computer systems running.

Tara serves in the Human Resource (HR) department as the Assistant Chief Human Resource Officer. She works closely with the Chief Human Resource Officer, primarily focusing on staffing needs for the work of Bible translation in PNG. This allows the people serving in their various positions to focus on their task in Bible Translation.

Would you partner with the Ellises in Bible Translation by joining their Wycliffe ministry team of prayer and financial partners to reach the Bibleless in Papua New Guinea?

Wycliffe Ministry Budget

Wycliffe establishes a Ministry Budget for its missionaries to reflect recurring expenses related to family factors and their geographic location of service. Giving to Wycliffe directly impacts missionaries’ ability to begin and remain in their assignment.

This budget covers ministry-related expenses, insurance and retirement, social security and taxes, and Wycliffe administrative costs. The remainder is what the missionaries receive as “take-home pay” for their daily living expenses.
