Melanie’s parents started attending Sagemont before she was born, and when she was six, the family decided to serve in a new church. She trusted Christ as a young teenager while away at summer camp, and she and her brother were baptized together by their father, Chuck Cummings. The family eventually returned to Sagemont, and she became a member in 2008. She has a heart for young children, graduating with a degree in Early Childhood Education from Stephen F. Austin State University in 1994. She has spent most of her time as a classroom teacher, as well as several years as Education Coordinator for UT Medical School in Houston. She became our Childcare Coordinator in May of 2018 providing childcare and ministry to infants, preschoolers and grade school children. She and Daryl married in 2009, live in Pearland, and enjoy traveling and spending time with family and friends.
