About Missionary Ellen


Whether you choose to call her confidante, entrepreneur, mentor, advocate, teacher, or counselor, Ellen Keys Clark has done it all. She is a missionary and evangelist licensed by the International Church of God in Christ.

Born Ellen Keys in the small Mississippi town of Laurel, she was born into a family of dynamic preachers, teachers, missionaries, and pastors. Later, her family called Picayune, Mississippi home.


As the youngest daughter of the late pastor and superintendent, W.R. Keys, she had to become a jack-of-all-trades at an early age. She was a gifted singer, drummer, and pianist. In the wake of her father’s unexpected passing, she and her mother, the late Essie Mae Keys, continued the ministry her father began.


Missionary Ellen currently resides in southern Mississippi where she is a member of Tabernacle of Faith COGIC and remains faithful to her local church and community. More than any other accomplishment, she is most proud to be the mother to Kimberly Clark, Kirbie Watson, and a son by marriage, Ernie Watson Jr., all of whom reside in Houston, Texas.
