Social media Manager & Missions assistant

Melissa Applebee

Melissa was born and raised in Southern California, but lived for a short time in Arizona and Montana. She gave her life to Jesus when she was 16 years old, and has since been on fire to spread the Gospel. She is a student at Grand Canyon University, majoring in Christian Studies.

Here at CrossPoint, Melissa wears a lot of hats. She is the Missions Coordinator, Storytelling Ministry Director, and Social Media gal. 

Melissa is a cheerleading coach for school and competition teams. She writes a blog, My Sweet Jesus, and loves to encourage other women through it. She loves dark chocolate and coffee, spends too much time reading, and can most often be found at a taco truck. Christian rock music is her jam, and she has a heart for the nations.

Her favorite Bible story is when a sinful woman brings an alabaster flask of perfume to the feet of Jesus to anoint him. 

"And standing behind him at his feet, weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head and kissed his feet and anointed them with the ointment." Luke 7:38
