Melanie Penn is a native Virginian and comes from a long line of Presbyterian church planters from the midwest. Before them, she descends from some spiritual radicals who sailed to North America on the Mayflower.
Melanie tells the CTC story both in New York City and in other cities, oversees the organization's creative and promotional materials, and collaborates with philanthropists who give major gifts to CTC. She considers it a privilege to work with heroic church planters from all over the world.
She lives in Brooklyn and is also a professional worship leader and singer-songwriter.
