Children's Ministry Director
Merlene has been attending CCCM since 1983, and having no previous Bible knowledge, she was saved at a small study in the Fellowship Hall. This is where God did a complete transformation and she experienced what it means to be a new creation in Christ.
As a staff member, Merlene has served in the Nursery, ASAPH Records, Calvary Distribution, and currently in Kids Ministry since 1999.
As director of Kids Ministry, Merlene's desire is to partner with parents in bringing kids to Jesus; that they will know Him as their personal Savior, that they will love God with all their heart, and that they will live out their faith in loving others and sharing the Good News. She finds great joy to see little ones grow up loving Jesus!
Merlene has had the opportunity to travel to many countries around the world teaching at conferences and encouraging those with the desire to minister the love of Jesus to children.
Merlene is blessed beyond measure to have three amazing married children who love God, and the great joy of five awesome grandchildren.

Favorite Verse: 2 Corinthians 5:17 "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”
