Melissa Riggs, ELC DIRECTOR

Melissa grew up in the small town of Jamestown, NY, where she met her husband in the three-year-old preschool class at her home church. It was “love at first slide!” Melissa and Jim have three kids and have been active members of Life Community Church since 2008.

Melissa has a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Grove City College in Pennsylvania and taught in the Dallas, TX area for six years before becoming a stay-at-home mom. She is passionate about curriculum and instruction and enjoys teaching children life skills and God's Word. She is thrilled for the opportunity to be involved in a ministry that combines so many of her passions and skills to impact children and families in the Nolensville area for God's glory.

For the past ten years Melissa has run her own business, Lissalaneous, selling stickers, signs, and party supplies. If you have bought a sign at Small Town Charm store, you may just have a piece of her work in your house! Melissa enjoys a good cup of creamy coffee, spending time in the woods and mountains, decorating, and running.
