Melissa Medley was a wonderful follower of Jesus, wife, mother and grandmother. She was, until her untimely death from pancreatic cancer in September 2021, a true spiritual mother at heart. She never felt that her place was in the pulpit or in the limelight. Her sweet spot was connecting with women one-on-one or in a very small group. It was there that her gifts of mercy and encouragement gave strength and wisdom to other women. She desired to touch hearts, encourage, pray for and mentor younger women in marriage, parenting, and growth in the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Our family loved that about Melissa and many women were the beneficiaries of her generous and hospitable heart. Our desire is to see that same heart multiplied to others, so we are setting up The Melissa Movement, a fund that promotes  spiritual mothering in the body of Christ.

Spiritual mothers are women who have a heart to befriend, teach, and mentor younger women in practical issues and in the gospel of Christ. This fund will enable women who have a similar heart to Melissa to continue this vital discipling work, both locally and in the nations.
