Signature Message:

The Unexpected Invitation

Every one of us have had a season where we feel like life is on hold, our prayers aren’t being answered or God seems distant and unavailable.

A long-extended wait can have us weary in hope, depleted of joy, and doubting the love & goodness of God. Next thing we know, we’ve veered off course living a life God never intended us to live.

But what if God is using this season to extend an invitation? Could it be there’s more to this waiting season than our eyes see?

Because what we do in the wait matters for eternity!

I truly enjoyed hearing all you had to say. Thank you for making the trek and also for sharing your story. It definitely touched me and showed me a new perspective.

Anointed, powerful and engaging — these are just some words that I think of when I think of Melinda and her speaking style.

I watched myself and an audience be literally on the edge of our seats as she transparently spoke the Word in such a way that was both challenging and encouraging leaving us with a choice to leave and walk in victory.

I would recommend Melinda for any event!!

Jenn Hand,
Author of My Yes Is On The Table and Director of Coming Alive Ministries

Melinda has a testimony that God is using to turn even the hardest hearts toward Him and refresh the spirits of faithful believers.  The unmistakable presence of the Holy Spirit fills the room, and no word or phrase is spoken in vain.

Melinda has a God given ability to teach the Word in a way that penetrates your heart, floods your soul, and leaves you longing for more of Jesus.

Angela M.,

In Melinda’s teaching, she uses her real-life pain and stories to parallel with Biblical events. Her use of words and analogies bring my relationship with Christ to an embracing and loving relationship that helps me understand to rely on God and not myself.

Melinda’s faithfulness and obedience in the Lord is an inspiration to anyone who has an opportunity to hear her testimony. A true display of God’s love for us.
