As the WMU Executive Director, she encourages WMU groups to involve every member of the church in missions. This involves educating, giving, and encouraging members to become involved in short/long term mission trips. In other words, making missions a lifestyle.
Melody has a passion for seeing adolescent, young adults and mature women transformed by the Gospel of Jesus of Christ. Additionally, she is committed to seeing them empowered by Him to the extent every woman she encounters leaves a Godly legacy.

Minister Chanel Abrams is a Wife, Mother and Author. Chanel has been in Ministry for over 15 years, serving in various capacities. She was licensed in November of 2015 by Pastor Tyrone P. Jones IV and now serves as a Minister at First Baptist Church of Guilford. She currently works as the Makeup Artist and Hairstylist for the Christian Broadcast Network. (CBN) She never received any formal training in Makeup Artistry. She is self-taught, with hands The Lord has blessed her with. Chanel received her AA degree in Christian Counseling from United Christian Ministries International. One of her greatest joys is seeing people have an “Ah-ha” moment. Whether they finally receive understanding from Scripture, they really realize that God loves them just the way they are, or they get the mirror to see what her hands have created with her makeup and hair skills. Humor is a huge part of her life also. She loves to laugh and make people laugh. On any given day, you will find her reciting lines from a range of comedic television sitcoms or movies.
This year Minister Abrams wrote her first book that discusses how to be free from Anxiety. Anxiety is something that many struggle with, but not many talk about it. Her motto is found in Matthew 19:26 “with God all things are possible.”
