Melanie Shepard currently co-leads a campus ministry in middle Tennessee @ Austin Peay State University where about 70 students attend weekly ministry meetings. During the semester, Melanie has the opportunity to mentor 25 solid Christian leaders who are actively sharing their faith and discipling others.
God has blessed this ministry to students with much spiritual fruit. Students are encountering the gospel of Christ, being transformed, discipling others, and being called into full time ministry. Melanie considers it a wonderful privilege to be used by God in this capacity.
Melanie felt called into full time ministry in middle school, and after graduating with a B.A. from Murray State University, relocated to Kiev, Ukraine to lead English Clubs with University students there. Her heart continues to beat for the European Nations, especially Germanic and Slavic countries. As God continues to develop her as a missionary, she hopes to make it back to that side of the globe to long term ministry again.
