Melinda Lucas Bio

Director of Business Operations

Melinda moved to Spokane in 2011 after spending most of her life in Oregon. Shortly after moving to Spokane she began volunteering at Youth for Christ. In 2012 she finished her BS degree in Human Development & Family Sciences from Oregon State University and then received her Masters In Teaching from Whitworth University in 2013. Melinda met her handsome husband, Joseph, while volunteering at YFC and they got married in August of 2013. They have two beautiful daughters, Zoey and Hazel.

Melinda came to YFC, as many volunteers do, to earn credit for a college class she was enrolled in. She thought it would be a few month commitment, just a page or two in her story, but going on 5 years later she is now on staff. God’s story for Melinda had a lot more to do with YFC than Melinda ever imagined. Finding great passion in supporting and encouraging leaders at YFC, she spends her time keeping the ministry running smoothly as the Director of Business Operations. Melinda sees the impact of investing in the ministry teams & volunteers directly as the teams impact the youth of Spokane. 

In her spare time, she loves to spend time with her husband, play with her energetic puppy, bake (especially cakes), play Settlers of Catan, and spend time with friends & family.
