Melissa has served alongside her husband, Jim Roe, as a missionary sent out by the First Baptist Church in Milford, OH. Since 1998, the Roes have worked in a Restricted Access Nation, training nationals to do the Great Commission. Missions education has become an ever-growing priority in her life and she seeks to pass that on to others. Encouraging Christians to love and embrace a multi-lingual and multi-ethnic world is her passion. Jim and Melissa have two daughters and one grandson. In addition to mission work, Melissa writes, speaks, and teaches about missions.
