Today is Ellen Battles’ 30th anniversary serving Texas Baptists in the Bible study/discipleship area. For three decades, she has been helping with the Bible Drill competition, helping churches set up Bible Drill programs, encouraging leaders in their ministries and lifting up young people.
Dickie Dunn, Texas Baptists’ discipleship specialist, may have put it best when I asked him to describe Ellen’s spirit of service.
“I can’t think of anyone who has a sweeter spirit or attitude. She cares about everyone in this building and everyone outside this building.”
“She loves Bible drill and the children and youth who participate in that.”
Ellen, thank you for all you have done for thousands of young people across the state. May God continue to bless you and your ministry.
