Pastor David Melville

Reverend David Melville has come home. Born at Baton Rouge General Hospital on October 19, 1950, David grew up in towns across the state. As a young adult, he earned two degrees during his six years at LSU. He then returned to north Louisiana to raise a family with his wife of forty-one years, Melanie Roemer Melville.

Somewhere along the way, David fell in love with church work that intersects with our daily lives. David and Melanie decided to commit their final years of ministry to being even closer to folks working at marriage, family and vocation. The Melville’s returned to David’s birthplace with a thriving downtown, a vibrant church community of commendable denominations, and very importantly , two granddaughters (plus their parents).

Pastor David is ordained within the United Methodist Conference of Louisiana, with a Master of Divinity degree from Drew Theological School in Madison, New Jersey. He has led non-profit organizations and churches, he has run for Congress, and has offered the peace of Christ as far away as Russia and Cuba. David knows that the same peace is available to you. Call David @ 397-6393.
