Melonie is married to Dean and a stay-at-home mom to two active teenage kids, Zachary and Jenna. Melonie is very active herself and loves playing sports and/or watching her kids compete. Awhile ago :), Melonie graduated from Rocky Mountain College with a Bachelor's Degree in Religious Education (in the very room that we now hold our church gatherings) and since then has thrown a lot of her extra time and energy into the local church. She and her family were a part of the "launch team" at Hillside Community Church. Melonie was the worship coordinator since Hillside's beginning and also worked as the overall ministry coordinator and interim leader (when Hillside was without a pastor). Melonie is excited to see what God will accomplish through the people of the newly merged New Hope Hillside church and what her role might be in that plan.
