Melissa Madasz
Children and Teen Director

Birthday: August 21

My folks, Dave and Becky, are awesome and have been working in ministry for as long as I can remember! My older brother, David and his wife, Tessa, currently work at Northside Christian...a school that their children, Tyler and Morgan, attend. I currently share an apartment with my younger sister, Erin. It's been a great experience! The saving grace: our own bathrooms! :)  

When did you join the staff of Crossroads?
April 1st, 2007

What is your primary responsibility at Crossroads?
My ministry is two-fold: I am responsible for the entire Children's Department (birth to 5th grade) as well as the Missions program in the church! It's awesome because the Lord has given me a chance to be involved in the two areas that I love the most!

What do you love most about working at Crossroads?
THE KIDS!!! I have the honor of working with the BEST kids in the area! I LOVE them! It's exciting to see the Truth of the Word affect how they operate. Some have come to a saving knowledge of God, some have witnessed to their friends and family and some have made hard choices to do what's right in the face of others who urge them to do differently. When you see that kind of commitment in the life of a child it spurs you on to live that way yourself!

Who is the most influential person in your life?
I have more than one being that my parents are equally influential in my life!

What inspires you?
Watching the way that God works in my life and the lives of those around me. It still amazes me just how much He loves us!

Do You Write With Your Right or Left Hand?

Any Hidden Talents?
Nothing fascinating

Life Long Goal:
To be used of God in any way He so desires...and have fun doing it!

Little Known Fact About Me:
I have a healthy dose of A.D.D. which makes me perfect for working with kids!

Almost anything that makes me laugh!

T.V. Show:
I'm a fan of reality TV...I know...it's sad! But I love watching Top Chef, Design Star, America's Next Top Model and Survivor!

La Bamba's in Dothan, Alabama

I'm a fan of the savories rather than the sweets

Ice Cream:

Drink @ Starbucks:
White Chocolate Mocha...three pumps...extra shot...no whip = bliss!

I love music so it changes quite often. Right now I'm singing Jesus Saves from Travis Cotrell's newest CD...as well as some VBS songs from this summer! :) I just can't help myself!

Junk Food:
Vanilla Bean Cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory! It's a little slice of heaven!
