Life verse - Acts 20:24 - " But I count my life of no value to myself, so that I may finish my course and the ministry I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of God's grace."

Melinda was born and raised in Arizona.  Melinda is a "pastor's kid", her dad is still a pastor of a Southern Baptist Church in the West Valley.  She accepted Christ at the age of nine and was baptized at Mohave Valley Baptist Church.  At age thirteen she began to feel God's call on her heart to ministry.  Since that time, she has continued to seek God's calling on her life.  Melinda and her husband, Jason, have been living in Colorado Springs, Colorado for the past two years.

Melinda's spiritual gifts include: leadership, administration and teaching.  "I have always felt that God gave me these gifts to allow me to lead and teach in a worship leading position.  These gifts together, allow me to be organized and efficient in ministry, the ability to teach and lead a group effectively."  Melinda is an extremely talented vocalist and plays the guitar and piano.

Melinda was home schooled until enrolling in high school.  She has previously attended Glendal Community College and Arizona Christian University.  Melinda will be continuing the pursuit of a degree in Music Education.  She has completed classes in music theory, many years of vocal lessons, chorale/jazz ensemble, and piano proficiency.

Melinda enjoys many different styles of church music.  She enjoys hymns and believes that worship choirs are still relevant.  "I believe that there is power in music that can be a very influential tool in molding and shaping hearts for Christ.  I love songs that are full of truth and biblical doctrine, and it is through singing and playing these songs that we get a chance to hear truth through the music, to make a joyful noise to the Lord, and to ultimately lead people to sing praises to our God, which is very empowering."

When asked about ways she can be a servant Melinda stated, "Through the gifts that God has given me, both spiritual and natural talents, I use them as a service to people.  This could be through teaching a bible study, leading a worship service, teaching music lessons or whatever opportunities that God brings my way to serve others."
