Ellen Stines


Hi! My name is Ellen Stines. I am currently serving as a missionary with Fire and Fragrance in Potchefstroom, South Africa.

In 2021, I did my Discipleship Training School (DTS) with YWAM in Brazil and was sent to South Africa on outreach. I saw what God was doing here in South Africa and felt called to be a part.

In 2022 I did a school of Revival & Reformation which is made up of a Bible school, a worldview school, and a communication/leadership school. End of 2022 I joined full-time staff with Fire & Fragrance South Africa.

I have the joy of running the day-to-day operations of the finance office as well as leading a weekly outreach to Hope Again Recovery Center, a local drug and alcohol rehab. I'm looking forward to helping with events across South Africa that will mobilize the church to be a part of God's greater mission. I also have a heart for adoption and foster care initiatives as 1.8 million children in South Africa would benefit from adoption.

As a missionary, I do not receive a salary or financial support from YWAM or Fire and Fragrance South Africa. All my financial support comes from friends like you.

Would you prayerfully consider partnering with missions in prayer and financially to see South Africa and Africa impacted by the Gospel?
