Who knew that a boy from Richmond, VA and a girl from Bourbonnais, IL would meet on a blind date in Boston! While attending Eastern Nazarene College in Quincy, MA, Melinda’s older sister heard Jason sing in a chapel service and told her mom she had just heard Melinda’s future husband sing. While visiting her sister for a weekend, she set the couple up on a blind date and the rest is history.
A few years after Jason graduated, Melinda graduated from Olivet Nazarene University. Melinda and Jason were married soon after and have been happily married for twenty-three years. The couple has lived and ministered in Richmond, VA, Anderson, IN , and Holland, MI. Jason worked for twenty years as a computer technician, and has served as a worship leader and small group leader. Melinda has been a music teacher, song writer, conference speaker/teacher, and a worship and care pastor. She is also an ordained Wesleyan pastor and has a Master of Divinity from Wesley Seminary with a specialty in Multiplication.
