He became a Quaker minister and the headmaster of the in Marshalltown, Iowa. In 1907, he succeeded as the president of Peniel College in Greenville, Texas.

In 1924, he was the chairman of the committee that revised the Nazarene Manual.His major published work, Theological Compend, published in 1908, was the first systematic theology arising out of the American Holiness Movement. It placed emphasis on the basic themes of Holiness theology, and was later used by theologians like and H. Orton Wiley as one of the foundations of their own thinking. At the 1915 General Assembly, Ellyson was again elected as general superintendent. He was not in attendance and had to travel to Kansas City by train to address the General Assembly.
