Melanie Smollen is a native of Traverse City, Michigan and now lives in Cape Girardeau, Missouri with her husband, Paul, who is in full-time ministry. They are parents to four amazing kids, two dogs, and a cat.
In 2008, Melanie had an idea to change the way churches approach hospitality and growth and Faith Perceptions was born. The Mystery Guest Program was developed soon after to help churches improve the way they welcome and connect with first-time guests. Melanie consults with churches across the country and speaks at conferences and other events about the research and work of Faith Perceptions.
Away from the office, you can find her enjoying the simple things in life like quiet time with a cup of coffee, eating good food (southern style), and cooking up a big meal for her family and friends.
