To manifest the love of God by educating, equipping, and mobilizing volunteers to transform the city and the world.
Ebele grew up a first-generation Nigerian American in the south suburbs of Chicago. She earned her bachelors in Political Economics from Georgetown University, and did what all immigrant parents hope their daughters will do with their econ degrees – she moved to New York City to work on behalf of Oprah Winfery, the Southeastern Conference, MTV, the FedEx Cup, and New York Fashion Week.
After a number of incredible New York years, Ebele returned home to Chicago to pursue a career that would allow her to engage her passion for social justice and leadership development. Ebele earned her masters in Social Service Administration from the University of Chicago and spent several years working with young people and staff in school and community settings. In her role as Love Works Director, Ebele is committed to engaging Soul City in conversations about justice and dignity, and mobilizing the church to be a compassionate and bold agent of change in this city and the world.
Ebele loves her early morning boxing class; owns three harmonicas that she plays very poorly, but loudly; and spends a joyful amount of time daydreaming about the taco salad at Little Goat and the brisket at Franklin’s in Austin, TX.
The Love Works planning team is made up of a diverse range of people who give of their time and talents to move our mission forward.
