Meet Brian Elling

We’re excited to welcome Brian Elling to the team as Regional Director for the Chicago area! After joining us in early 2018, he’s already taken his first trip to India and shares that it was an incredible experience.

Brian comes to Mission India after spending 30 years supporting clients with best practices and marketing goals, particularly in the healthcare industry. A graduate of Davenport University with time also spent at Calvin College, he’s all about helping others through nonprofit work. Previously, he’s spent time volunteering for organizations including Big Brothers Big Sisters and the American Diabetes Association.

Brian has a clear passion for reaching people with the love of Christ in India. He says, “Sharing the greatest story in the most critical place in the world, in some of the most strategic ways, is simply amazing.” Brian is excited to connect people who are committed to the Great Commission with the people of India!

Outside of work, Brian is probably just that—outside! Whether it’s hiking, kayaking, or riding bikes, he’s there. Brian also enjoys reading and spending time with his family; he and his wife, Shane, love their blended family totaling eight children and five grandchildren.
