I am so excited for this opportunity to introduce myself to you our valued partners and supporters in the mission of Flyingbow. My name is Melissa Wilson and I am the newest member of Flyingbow and the first staff member to join the team as an Administrative Coordinator. I have a background in music as well. I studied at Wilfrid Laurier University to obtain my Honours Bachelor of Music, my main instrument is the flute. I’m grateful for all that I had the chance to learn in my undergraduate degree and as always to use music as a way to worship and praise our Heavenly Father. During my time there I was also involved in Power2Change, the on-campus ministry group, as a discipleship group leader, one-to-one mentor and global outreach coordinator. The community and friendships fostered through this ministry involvement have had such a great impact on my life.
After a year serving in the Middle East as a Music and English teacher, I am now a master’s student at Carleton University studying Philanthropy and Non-Profit Leadership. I am so grateful for the way the Lord has led me to this opportunity to gain skills to serve in a role with charities and ministry organizations.
When I met Trevor at a missions conference at my church, it seemed that God placed us both in the right place at the right time. One of the main items for prayer was to look for an Administrative staff member to allow Flyingbow to build capacity and be able to grow their reach and ministry. After a conversation with Trevor about God placing me in a program where I could learn to support ministries by empowering them through administrative support to better accomplish their mission and vision, we felt our meeting was orchestrated by the Lord.
As I begin this ministry I would ask for your support through prayer as we continue to transition tasks to my role and that the Lord’s will be done in all things. If you feel led to support me through finances, please follow the link below to my personal support page and if you wish to connect with me further please follow the link below.
Thanks for reading, I look forward to what the Lord has in store for Flyingbow over this coming year!
