Melissa and Chase have known each other since childhood and grew up in the same church where both of them came to know the Lord. Even though they had been friends through elementary, middle school, and high school, they didn't start dating until they were 800 miles apart attending different schools. They married in 2007 and immediately moved to Fort Worth for Chase to work on his Master's degree at Southwestern. Chase and Melissa are true partners in ministry and life. Melissa is certainly the sweeter of the couple and also a godly mother to their two sons: Brady and Noah.
