PASTOR MICHELE MELIA

About Me

My story

I am a licensed local pastor currently serving Wesley United Methodist Church in Lincoln, RI.

A licensed local pastor is a minister licensed by their annual conference and appointed to serve a specific local church or charge. The requirements for licensure vary from conference to conference but generally include completing a basic course of study at an approved seminary school and being appointed by the bishop. Local pastors are often called upon to serve small membership churches or churches in rural areas.

My Family

I have been married for 30 years to my wonderful husband, Michael. God has blessed us with five children and 14 grandchildren.

I grew up in Upstate New York and moved to Rhode Island in 1995 when my husband left the US Air Force.
