My name is Melody Ott and I am
the youth director at St. Anastasia.
I became the youth director about five years ago.
At that time I was a Clinical Social Worker in private practice providing mental
health services to children, adolescents, and families. When I was approached about taking the youth ministry
position at St. Anastasia, I was convinced that I wasn’t equipped to take the
job! Upon much prayer and discussion with
my family, I accepted the position and the rest, as they say, is history!
In addition to my Master of Social Work degree that I received from Florida
State University (go Noles!), I have also completed my Certificate in Youth
Ministry studies from the Center for Ministry Development.
I believe that God has called me into this field and blessed me with the
opportunity to share his love and the life of his son, Jesus Christ, with the
young people in our community.
This is the best job in the WORLD – I love it!
