Hi there! I have privilege of serving as the Middle School Pastor here at Worship Center! One of the best parts of my job is seeing students’ hearts change towards God. It’s such a cool thing to watch a student make the connection that God loves them, desires to have a relationship with them, and then see them learn to walk the journey of faith as they put their trust and hope in Jesus. I grew up going to church and always knew of God’s love for me, but middle school is when I came to know Jesus as my own Savior and Shepherd. I love that I now have a job where I get to help lead middle schoolers to know and grow in Jesus, too!

God has shown me so much mercy and grace throughout my life and I am so grateful for the ways he continues to pursue me and show his kindness to me. Because of his kindness, I have gotten to serve in ministry and missions both in the states and abroad. I have called Lancaster City home since 2019 and have been a part of Worship Center since my very first week in town. I’ve been married to my favorite person, Ryan Mellon, since 2021, and am over the moon to be working in ministry together. I love a good cup of coffee, getting lost in a creative project and tending to the mini-jungle of houseplants growing in both my home and office.
