Todd & Melissa Melton

Endless energy and ideas. Object lessons on a child’s level that drive the message of Jesus home every week. Todd and Melissa have worked with our children and youth since 1987. As teens, Teen Mania got them interested in missionary programs. They have been Ambassadors to the Nations full time missionaries over the years.

Four years ago God spoke to their hearts to begin a Wednesday night, Kid's Club Night. Every Wednesday night the children's ministry is busing in an average of 60 to 80 kids and teenagers. Todd and Melissa's passion is great for the children's ministry. They were married here at FCC in 1994 and have four boys and two girls.

Children & Youth Leaders

Demetrius & Roberta Dawson

The Dawsons serve as worship leaders and oversee an awesome Praise & Worship team with a live band that loves to lift up the name of Jesus!  Our worship style would be considered Contemporary, singing a lot of songs from Hillsongs, Clint Brown, Terry Clark, Paul Wilbur and Alvin Slaughter just to name a few. We even have songs that some of our members have written. We also have a team consisting of different FCC churches that go out to minister anywhere in the U.S..

Demetrius is the founder and president of Freedom Music Institute (FMI). FMI endeavors to train musicians and vocalists to reach their full potential in the area of music ministry.  Another extension of their music ministry, the Dawson's also founded Chennaniah Praiz Productions, which encompasses the area of music production and distribution. The Dawsons seek to fulfill God's call on their life to teach others how to "bring the music from the inside out", and as schedules permit, travel the region to teach and train the body of Christ in the area of praise and worship.
