Dana &Melissa Sturgis
Dana and Melissa are originally from New England but have called Tennessee home for the last 20 years. Dana works for the Tennessee Valley Authority in Nuclear Quality Assurance. Melissa spends much of her time reading and creating home-made encouragement cards. Married for 34 years so far, they attribute their long marriage to the grace of God, and unwavering commitment through the many challenges they have experienced over the years. Dana and Melissa were raised Catholic, married Congregational, and spent a few years in a Lutheran church. After a lengthy interview with a local Baptist pastor in Maine, Dana brought the family to a Baptist church where Melissa, their oldest daughter Nicole, and Melissa’s Mother Doris were all saved. It was there where Dana sensed a call to ministry. After providing pulpit supply for many years, Dana was ordained to pastoral ministry in 2008. An avid bass fisherman, Dana was introduced to KFWC in 2018 and looks forward to ministering to the KFWC family for many years to come!
