Board of Intercessors
Ellie Gorwin retired after a career as a database and business intelligence programmer in institutions of higher learning in 2011. As a long-time supporter of Seed Company, an affiliate of Wycliffe Bible Translators, and with time on her hands, she sought a volunteer opportunity with Seed Company as a way to serve the Lord in a more hands-on way. She came on board just as Seed Company was ready to launch their Unceasing Prayer Web site. She is excited and blessed to be part of prayer movements and believes that prayer is key to getting God’s work done in the world.
