Director of Global Mobilization
|Office Location||Geiger Center, 109|
Melissa joined the staff at OBU in May of 2017 after serving internationally in Thailand for nearly five years. There, she and her husband worked in higher education as an avenue to live their lives on mission. Born in Little Rock, Arkansas, and raised in Connecticut, her life has been embedded with cross-cultural experiences. Returning to serve at OBU after years of ministry within the context of higher education settings in Hawaii, California, and Thailand has been a beautiful journey. She and her family live in Shawnee with their two kids and enjoy their involvement in the local church and life on campus. Melissa is passionate about encouraging university students to grow in their identity in Christ and respond to the call to make God's name known among the nations.
