Melvin has called New Life Church home since he moved to Central Arkansas from New York City in 2014. As a senior in high school, he felt drawn to the state of Arkansas and took the leap of faith to move after his high school graduation. Thereafter, he faithfully served in college ministry for 6 years at our Conway campus before moving to GLR and leading in high school ministry. The Martinez’ have a passion for people to be seen, supported, and loved. They are excited to reach the students of Central Arkansas with the hope of Jesus and continue to help build the vision of New Life Church.
