We’re excited to give you an inside-look at Allison, who is one of the most intentional and fun thought-leaders Ellen knows. In episode four, Ellen talks with Allison about her calling into ministry early in her career with Youth With A Mission, and her later transition from working in corporate finance to ministry with Compassion Canada. Ellen dives deep with Allison and asks her whether or not child sponsorship actually works.
