Melissa is our children’s ministry director, ministering to those from infants through 4th grade.  She began attending FCC with her family in the 1st grade.

A local to the St.Johns area, she graduated from Bartram Trail High School in 2016. She is currently pursuing a degree in nursing.

When asked after graduation whether she planned to focus more on nursing or on her passion for children hearing the good news of Jesus, she simply says “Why not both?”.

She has experience as a children’s camp speaker and a history of 7 years of service with FCC Kids Ministries. Her favorite event of the year is our front yard Vacation Bible School “Go Clubs” where we share the gospel in local 210 neighborhoods.

Dancing to worship and her signature game “sink or float” make her the happiest. When she’s not hitting the books studying for school or prepping the next big thing in FCC Kids, she enjoys working out, soaking up the sunshine, and spending time with friends. A fun fact about Melissa is that she has donated 36 inches of hair total to locks of love.
