Matt Melton

OPERATIONS, WEB DESIGNER

I’ve been in children’s ministry since 1994. As a techie I gravitated to leading the tech team. I was then challenged to start acting in front of the kids by being different characters (that I had to create). I didn’t like that idea, but felt like I’d try it. Unbenounced to me, I loved acting and learned how to ad-lib. Shortly after acting in kid’s ministry, I started making videos and editing them for our drama team…AND LOVED IT! I’ve been using my videography & video editing talents in the workplace since 1999.

In the course of dating Holly, I was able to learn more about Cru, formerly Campus Crusade for Christ. I was able to attend a Staff conference in April 2012 and really see more of Holly’s world. I remember sitting at the staff conference and asking God if He was ‘expanding’ my ministry that He has already given me. I felt such a peace about it. I told Holly the next day that I am going to apply for staff with Cru. She thought I was joking. One thing I appreciated about our journey while dating is that Holly never push/forced/hinted to join staff.

I joined staff September 2012 (a week before we got married). I was on the Operations Team at the Regional office in Irvine, CA for the first year. I then moved to campus at Cal State Fullerton  as a full-time field staff for 3 1/2 years. I went back on the Operations Team in January 2018 to become the sole web designer for Creative1Media team for the United States campus ministry. It’s very exciting to see how God is using me as I continue to trust Him with each step.
