Children ministry director - melissa hill

    I am so excited and honored to be the Children & Youth Ministry Director at the Chapel. I was born and raised in Kansas City, mostly in Kansas City, Kansas, where I attended Trinity Community Church in my youth and where my mom still attends.

            I have been in Children’s Ministry as a volunteer and as a paid staff member for over 10 years. I have a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education from Rockhurst University and I am currently in my 4th year teaching 2nd grade for Troost Elementary School in Kansas City, Missouri. Every day that I get to spend influencing children to embrace God’s principals of love and kindness to others I consider to be a blessing.

            I have two daughters Cierra and Layla. Cierra is 25 and works as a restaurant manager in Leawood. Layla is 11 and attends school in Gardner, Kansas. Layla loves being a part of the Chapel too!

            My strengths are getting things done with a multitude of things on the list, creativity, and leadership. I am not the best at remembering names, so please grant me some grace! 

            Ask me any questions, let me know any ideas or concerns! I want to make our Children’s Ministry thriving and prosperous! I can’t wait to meet and to fall in love with your children.

“Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
