Hey there, thanks so much for stopping by, my name is Melissa and I am thrilled to have you join me here for a few minutes. I’ve been married to my best friend Matt for 28 years now and we have two adult sons, Nick and Bailey, a beautiful daughter in love, Ashley (married to Nick) and five fur grandbabies.
I love Jesus, Disney World, and Books, probably in that order, but more than anything I love walking alongside God’s daughters and helping them find practical solutions for their growth. I’ve spent the majority of my adult life serving women in the local church and now spend my time coaching and consulting with women in ministry and churches.
My heart is to be a champion and encourager for women who feel stuck and want to rise up and do what God is calling them to do but just don’t even know where to begin. As a certified life breakthrough coach I ask questions that help you get to the heart of the issue.
I was born and raised in Kentucky but spent the majority of my life in the South and Central Florida area. God opened my eyes to His lavish love and grace during that season, called me to ministry, called my husband to ministry, and has taken our family on some crazy incredible adventures — from volcanoes in Guatemala to the desert of Africa.
As someone who has weathered many storms throughout my life I don’t say this simply or easily, but I do try to seek the JOY on the journey. You will often find me with my mouth wide open, laughing and enjoying the many unexpected blessings along the way. I would love to walk alongside you as you see to step forward to whatever God might be calling you to next.
Melissa has invested over 20 years serving the local church on three different church staff teams ranging in size from 90 to over 14,000 in weekend attendance. Melissa has had various roles, including executive level leadership, and an extensive background in communications, marketing, membership, groups, first impressions, weekend service development, children’s ministry and women’s ministry.
Melissa is also working with the Kadi Cole & Company team as the Director of Women’s Initiatives where she leads over 2500 women from all over the world through the Ministry Chick Facebook group. Melissa uses her ministry experience to help churches expand their reach, develop their strategy, as well as their leadership.
Her specialty is working with women in ministry – at the local church, non-profits, and personal ministries. I coach female leaders to transform their thinking and renew their gifts, skills, and leadership. I offer individual coaching to women in ministry as well as consulting with churches and female leaders.
She and her husband (of 28+ years) co-founded a company called, The Mashburns Consulting Group https://themashburnscg.com/, where they offer practical solutions for growth for churches and non-profits, but the training, insight and information can be transferred to businesses as well. We love to work alongside churches, ministries, and leaders who want to grow — either in attendance, giving, leadership abilities, volunteers, finances, etc.
As a Connector she loves to put the people that God puts in her path together. The connections we have are not just for our good, but the good of others and when you can place people together than can encourage, strengthen and build each other up in ministry or business then everyone wins.
