Pastor Bob Mellon joined the RHK Board of Directors in February of 2021 and we love the passion he brings to Rock House Kids! One day he was driving to Swedish American Hospital and needed to take a drive to pray. As he drove around, his heart broke for the area. He saw the sign out front and the Lord drove him into our parking lot. With no appointment, he rang the bell and met with Dee wanting to know more about what was behind our doors.
Jesus was relational much like Rock House Kids is relational, according to Pastor Mellon. RHK is “an oasis in the desert where kids can get “refreshed” and an opportunity for God to show who he is in a real way. If it’s one life we change, that’s all that matters.”
He is excited about strengthening the infrastructure within RHK as we embark on our expansion and continue our mission and vision. “Investing into volunteers is key, along with building partners within the community”,
