The Ark began with the Allan family, Ron and Glenda and their 12 kids. Home base is Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada. For 20 years the family maintained the Ark Children’s Home in Riobamba Ecuador and now the family is scattered around the world. Some have gone back to Canada to re-learn how to be Canadian and others still play a big part in what the Ark is doing world wide.
Our history in missions dates back to 1977 when we went to YWAM Texas, then YWAM Tacoma doing short term missions work with the Gitsan Indians in BC and later joining staff in YWAM Baguio, Philippines. It was after God spoke to us powerfully that we began the Ark in 1996.
We currently have four boards: The Ark Children’s Homes in the United States, Ark Kids Ministries in Canada, Fundacion El Arca in Ecuador, and Grass Roots Ark Ministries in the Philippines. The first two support the ministries in Ecuador and the Philippines
