Meet Melinda

How did you come into a relationship with Christ?

It began when I was 19 years old. My boss told me about the life changing truth of Jesus and throughout the next year, him and his wife became mentors, and discipled me while I pursued Christ.

What do you do at FOF?

I am the Coffee Bar Director. This consists of stocking and taking inventory, updating and creating, and of course, feeding the sweet tooth, and serving oodles of gourmet coffees so people stay awake!

Why do you do what you do?

It started out as my way to serve my church family. I have always loved hospitality and I love playing a role in the generosity movement at FOF. There is big significance in the Bible regarding food and sharing a meal. So for me, Having the opportunity to provide food for others to share helps create a greater sense of community. It’s the best “job” ever!

At FOF since:

Winter 2006

On staff since:

January 2015

Favorite bible verse(s)?

Since coming to FOF, I have learned a great deal about Grace. So, because of that, here’s my favorite verse:

My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” – 2 Corinthians 12:9
