Pastor Mel and his wife, Annette, are Caledonia natives. Both grew up in this community and have been married since July 1985. They have two adult children, Maeghan and Jordy. Maeghan and her husband Josh have two sons, Hardy and Hayden. Jordy and his wife Jesse also have two sons, Arlington and Remington. Those four little boys are the highlight of Maw-Maw and Big Daddy’s lives these days.
Bro Mel is a graduate of Trinity Bible College and Liberty University Seminary, but did most of his undergraduate work at Mississippi State University… so he is a DAWG! He has been our pastor since June of 2015 and previously served for more than twelve years as pastor of Ethelsville Baptist Church in Pickens County, AL.
Bro. Mel’s favorite Bible verse is Nahum 1:7.
“The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and He knows those who trust in Him.”
