Melanie Burns--Worship Director


Favorite part of your role at MSBC?

I love working with the people in the worship teams (choir, band and techs).  I am continually blest by their servant hearts, musicianship and loving discipleship. We have fun together, whether in rehearsals or on Sunday mornings.

How did you get into ministry?

In many ways, I was born into it!  I come from a long line of musicians who have served Christ through His church.  More than ability has been availability to walk through open doors of ministry.  It's been awesome to look back at the journey, as well as to look forward to what God will have in the days to come.


Beautiful, sunny, friendly San Diego, California

Family Info:

I am married to Randall, our Lead Pastor.  We have a son, Mackenzie (married to Hallie), who is a worship leader in Jackson, TN, and a daughter, Madeline (married to Ben Fondren), who is a registered nurse and also lives in Jackson, TN. We have one daughter, Amanda Grace, waiting for us in heaven.

One thing God wants me to share with others...

...that He is completely faithful and worthy of our total trust, no matter what this life throws at us.  There is nothing to fear! “Nothing to prove, nothing to lose” (credit my friend Karen with that one!)

What is a fun/interesting fact about you? father was once offered 200 camels for me :>).  That was in Jordan in 1980 ~ I guess the guy was desperate to come to the USA!!

What makes you laugh?

Randall makes me laugh! :>) …and watching Tim Hawkins!!
