Melissa Dunlap is an ordained elder in the Untied Methodist Church. She is currently the sole employee of her own church consulting business. She coaches church pastors and writes grants for new church starts and churches that serve diverse populations.
She has been at Vine Church since its earliest days. She wrote the grant that funded the first few years of the church’s ministry and served on the launch team. In the process she mastered the skills of setting up the tent, inflating the bounce house and generally being around to do what needs to be done. These days this includes helping with worship, serving communion or the occasional sermon. Melissa will be the co-chair of the Dream Team.
Melissa is married to Kyle and has two grown children Allen and Kyra. A few times a year you can find her on stage or back stage at area local community theaters. When she’s not involved in a show, she and Kyle are planning to or are traveling to new places around the US and the world.
