Melissa Brigman Director of Missions
Sitting on a little brick wall outside church one night after youth group, Melissa felt the call to be in ministry at the young age of 13. A native of Tyler, she followed that call by attending Centenary College in Louisiana, graduating with honors with a degree in Christian education and certification by the Centenary School of Church Careers. She served as a director of Christian education in Methodist churches in Texarkana and Lufkin before coming to Marvin in 1992. Melissa is our director of Missions.
Melissa has served as chair of the Texas Conference Division of Missions, chair of the Texas Conference Russia Initiative and on numerous boards and agencies. She has participated in more than 70 mission trips, both national and international. She has received numerous awards from community and conference groups for her dedication to serving others.
Melissa is married to George Brigman and they have a grown son named Yuri. She loves to travel and explore, but her real passion is helping others find the joy of serving God through serving others!
