God has blessed Andrew Ellis with a voice so strong that at 22 years old he is already receiving invitations to perform professionally as an operatic tenor. But this isn’t just about singing--it is about bringing the light of Christ to the world of opera.
God has blessed Andrew with a voice, a voice so strong that at 22 years of age he is already receiving invitations to perform professionally as an operatic tenor. But this isn’t just about singing. Andrew has a vision to use opera as a two-fold platform—to bring the light of Christ to the opera world and to use opera as a door to take Christ to countries which value the fine arts but are hostile to the Gospel. But in order to break into the world of opera, his next step isn’t seminary or appointment with a traditional mission board. He must enter into a circuit of workshops and competitions which will allow him to grow as a singer and meet the “gatekeepers” who can open doors of opportunity.

Andrew has been invited by the renowned Italian tenor, Gioacchino Livigni, to be one of 30 students to participate in the Mediterranean Opera Studio in Sicily. This twenty-day program will provide intensive training in both vocal technique and Italian, and perhaps most importantly, the opportunity for Andrew to work with two of the greatest tenors in the world today--Marcello Giordani and Salvatore Fisichella. You can read more about this program by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page.

This summer, both Andrew and our daughter Victoria are fulfilling their student internships. Simply stated, their combined expenses go beyond our means as missionaries, so we are turning to God’s people to ask for help. We are trusting God to put together a team of people, some of whom will contribute financially but all of whom will pray, to enable them to take this next step in their training as God’s servants. Though Andrew’s vision for sharing Christ may be unconventional, I cannot question the validity of that vision. Please consider participating financially in his efforts.
