Ellen Evangelistic Singers
Ellen Evangelistic Singers is a group that seeks to provide various social services and spread the word of God in Tanzania and beyond through singing and preaching.
Ellen Evangelistic Singers (ELLES) offers evangelistic activities through the provision of social services, gospel music, and preaching the word of God in Tanzania, especially in unentered rural areas. ELLES as a group started in the City of Dar es Salaam in 2013.
Most members of the group come from the same family. The ministry of this group, whose members are mostly from one family, started after their mother, Ellen Minza Kalabaga, died in 2012.
When she was alive Ellen Minza was kind, generous and hospitable to people, especially servants of God who visited her area for missionary work. Her house in Nyangokolwa village, Bariadi District, became a camp for pastors and evangelists. Moreover, even before she joined Christianity, people from her family and those from her husband’s family came to her house for refuge. When Mama Ellen joined the Seventh-day Adventist Church, she loved to serve the church as a singer, evangelist, and deaconess. Because of her dedication to serving the Lord, when she died in 2012, her children decided to use the money that was donated toward her funeral to conduct evangelistic meetings.
Through singing, preaching and community services to make disciples of Jesus Christ who live as His loving witnesses and proclaim to all people the everlasting gospel of the Three Angels’ Messages in preparation for His soon return.
