Ellen Castillo is the Executive Director of Word of Hope Ministries, Inc. and a Certified Biblical Counselor. Ellen has been gifted to teach practical theology by equipping the next generation of Christians in the application of biblical counseling and mentoring.
She developed this skill in part by her prior experience as an Occupational Therapist in psychiatric settings while working with a variety of ages and diagnosis. She then spent many years raising children (biological and adopted foster children) and was the Homeschool Support Group Leader for the county she lived in at the time.
In that context, she enhanced her blend of counseling and leadership experience plus a heart to mentor younger women. The International Association of Biblical Counselors (IABC) certified her in counseling.
She has worked as a Women’s Counselor in the context of her local church ministry, and most recently as the Founder and Executive Director of Word Of Hope Ministries. Word Of Hope Ministries provides Biblical Counseling and Training both locally and online. Ellen is also a Council Board Member of the Biblical Counseling Coalition.
Ellen has written and published a Biblical Mentor training course for women called “Life On Life, Applying the One-Anothers of Scripture.” She teaches this course at various church sites and offers an online format as well.
