Love In the Name of Christ extends a grateful welcome to two new team members, Dave Draayer, Director of Relational Ministries and Melissa Bouma, Intern for Relational Ministries.

New Team Members

Dave is a graduate of Calvin College with a degree in education. After teaching in the US for two years, he and his wife, Jillian, moved to Zambia where he served at the Esther School as the School Administrator and Operations Director for two years. He’s excited to be a part of the Love INC team and have a chance to serve locally. Dave shares, “Missions doesn’t have to be far away. There are local opportunities as well. I’m excited to be a part of an organization that’s reaching out to the community it’s in.”

Melissa is a graduate of the Life Skills Program and a student at Indiana Wesleyan University. When looking for an internship, she wanted to serve in a place where she could give back in addition to simply meeting her school’s qualifications. Melissa is excited about some of the changes in the Life Skills Program and her ability to give her input as both a former participant and a current team member. She’s looking forward to helping the program grow during her internship.
