As a full-time addiction intervention specialist, he is available to speak at churches, civic organizations, or any venue where people want and need to learn about addiction, intervention, and recovery.
During three decades as a pastor, he also taught and spoke on the Bible, and is available for pulpit supply, interim ministry and teaching on a variety of other religious topics.
At the core of all addictions is a spiritual void. Dr. Ellis’s extensive experience as a theologian and pastor enables him to bring unique insights into the spiritual component of addiction and recovery. He is widely sought to address conferences and conventions about this topic, and also has been consulted by treatment centers to improve their spirituality programs.
Ignorance about the disease of addiction and the rampant negative spiritual emotions surrounding the disease are the greatest obstacles to intervention and recovery. One of Dr. Ellis’s main objectives through Chrysalis Interventions is to remove the shame, blame, and guilt surrounding addiction.
Having translated all of the New Testament and written commentary for many of the individual books, Terry is also committed to helping Christians understand the Bible. He has taught most every book of the New Testament and developed courses on the text, canon, and history of the Bible.
