Melson Family Missionaries
Pat and Kellis have served in Papua New Guinea for over 25 years with the Association of Baptists for World Evangelism. They help churches train workers and leaders for the Gospel ministry at Goroka Baptist Bible College (GBBC). Pat makes 3 teaching and ministry trips per year to the college where he served as the director for many years. When not preparing for trips, they assist with projects and resource development, as well as strengthening partnerships between Papua New Guinean and USA churches. GBBC offers various 2-4 year courses of study in both English and Melanesian Pidgin, and an advanced Bachelors program as well. Over 70% of the school's 440 graduates are serving the Lord. We are expanding the programs, staff, and facilities to continue expanding church planting and the Gospel outreach in Papua New Guinea. Pat and Kellis currently reside in Yuma, AZ to help care for aging parents.
