Melissa Moore-Winslow – Director of Children’s Ministries

Melissa grew up in Miles City, Montana, attended a Catholic school and regularly attended Mass at the local Catholic Church. However, it wouldn’t be until her late twenties, after many trials and tribulations, that she would come to truly know Jesus as her personal Savior and give Him lordship over her life. By His love and grace she was saved and her life has never been the same—for it belongs to Him. She never wants to forget the love, mercy and grace that she was given by Jesus and hopes, through Him, to extend those same blessings to others.

Melissa is blessed to be married to her husband, Blakeley, a wonderful and kind man who loves and serves the Lord faithfully. The Lord has also gifted her with a loving and sweet canine friend named Milo. Melissa attended undergraduate school in South Dakota and later graduate school in the DC metro area. She has worked as a litigation paralegal for over 15 years. In her spare time, Melissa enjoys hiking, being in nature, running and spending time with her family.

Melissa has a heart for children which has led her to mentor, teach and coach children both inside and outside of a ministry setting. Her desire is to share about Jesus so to provide each child with a strong faith foundation that can be carried with them throughout their life, and spiritually equips them no matter what challenges they may face. She feels it is a tremendous blessing to be a part of God’s plan in nurturing a new generation of believers that can pass on their faith for generations to come.
