Redeemed Institute places a high priority on the teaching of God’s Word, therefore we bring in gifted Bible teachers to encourage our attendees to foster a deeper love for Jesus and equip them with truth to walk in victory. Institute 2019 welcomes back Jackie Hill Perry, Tonya Riggle, Leigh Kohler, and Marian Jordan Ellis as our key note speakers. Additionally, we offer breakout sessions on a wide range of topics including relationships, spiritual gifts, and more.
MARIAN JORDAN ELLIS
Marian is the founder of Redeemed Girl Ministries. Marian’s powerful testimony of coming to brokenness and emptiness and her dynamic account of the gentle mercy and forceful grace of Christ who called her into his arms permeate all of her writings and speaking engagements.
Whole in Christ and ready to tell any ear that will listen, Marian has a passion for teaching women God’s word and nothing fires her up more than seeing women find their worth and identity in Christ. She is an active speaker and published author of six books: Stand, Sex and The City Uncovered, Wilderness Skills for Women, The List, Radiant, The Girlfriends Guidebook, and Sex and the Single Christian Girl. She is a graduate of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
When Marian isn’t writing, blogging, or on the road traveling to college campuses and women’s events, she loves cooking, spending time with friends, and mountain biking with the boys. Today, Marian lives in San Antonio with Justin and their two boys and daughter Sydney.
