About Melinda

  • I am a Registered Nurse by trade and the Mama to two amazing children. I have one brother here and a big sister that is waiting for me in Heaven.

  • I grew up in a very close knit musical family. Both of my grandfathers and my uncles were deacons. I grew up singing in church and was very active in church. I was baptized at 13 years old, BUT I had never accepted Christ as my personal Savior. When our pastor came to our house to visit and asked me if I had been saved I just said the first thing that popped into my head. I spent many years living a lie. I could have died and gone straight to hell!

  • It was at a “Bailey Smith One-Day Crusade” at 29 years old that I surrendered my life to Christ. He preached that morning about the wheat and tares. I thought about that sermon all day. That night he preached about the Lamb’s book of life. I kept thinking “my name’s not there”. That night on the field in Canton, GA, I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior. I had the head knowledge of HOW to be a CHRISTIAN but that night, under the stars, I got the HEART knowledge.
 
My sincere desire to those that we minister to is to tell them there is a God that sent His only son to die for them. He didn’t send His son to condemn them but to save them and have a PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP with every single person.
