Melissa has lived in the Hanover area for most of her life and spent her own teen years attending the HMC youth group.
While on a missions trip to Mexico in the summer of 1997, she met her husband, Jason. Together they have three wonderful children: Natalya, Joshua, and Jocelyn.
In her spare time she loves playing baseball and spending time at home with family and friends.
Melissa has a passion for youth, building into their lives, teaching them about God, having fun, and creating a safe environment where they can come and be themselves.
She is looking forward to what God has in store for the junior and senior youth.
