Meet Our Preachers
Shawn has been married to his wife, Jordan, since January of 2008. The Lord blessed them with four children; Cadence, Braelyn, Jace, and Ainsley. He studied full time with his father (minister) from January - October of 2009 and then with the West Allen congregation under Jerry King (minister) from January of 2010 - August of 2011. Their family moved to Richardson and he began to labor for the Melrose Drive congregation in September of 2011.
Shawn feels obligated to preach the gospel both inside and outside the walls at Melrose Drive. As a preacher he understands the charge to equip and build up the body (Ephesians 4:11-12) and is equally blessed with the responsibility to "proclaim the excellencies of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light" (1 Peter 2:9) to those who unknowingly walk in the dark. Shawn believes the Bible to be the word of God. His focus is centered around just that: the gospel (good news/message) which is "the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek" (Romans 1:16). Shawn would love an opportunity to share and consider "the words of eternal life" (John 6:68) with you!

Eddie has been married to his wife, Angie, since March 1990 and they have two children; a daughter, Jaydn and a son, Oren. He spent nine years serving as a Law Enforcement Specialist in the U.S. Air Force. Shortly thereafter, he began preaching the gospel in 1998. In July 2000, his family moved to Alabama to work with the Russellville church of Christ. In 2008 Eddie was awarded a bachelor's degree in Human Resources Management from Athens State University in Athens, Alabama. After nine fruitful years in Russellville, Eddie and his family made the move to begin working with the Melrose Drive congregation in July of 2009.
Eddie is simply a preacher of the gospel of Jesus Christ and does not hold any special title other than the name, Christian. His work with the congregation here is directed toward telling the lost about the saving grace of God. He also seeks to encourage the children of God to strive diligently for the faith. To accomplish this, Eddie spends his time in study and prayer so that he may effectively preach and teach the word of God, both publicly and from "house to house".
