Ellen Dunn

Ellen is a native of Louisiana, but after being here twenty-six years she calls Nashville home. She is the Preschool and Children’s Minister at Avenue South. Ellen has served in that role in another church plant and is a veteran preschool and children’s teacher in churches and schools. She currently teaches Kindergarten full-time at a private school while working part-time at Avenue South. In addition, Ellen worked in the Mission’s Department of a Baptist state convention, taught parenting classes at a child abuse prevention agency, and was an Editor-in-Chief of two parenting magazines for LifeWay Christian Resources. 

Her desire is to partner with parents to help boys and girls grow in their love for Jesus and their knowledge of the Bible to provide them with a strong foundation for the rest of their lives. She has three adult children, six grandchildren, and two crazy dogs!
