Director of Family Ministry




Lindsay Cayford (she/her/hers) came to Melissa UMC in March 2021. Here are a few fun facts:

Where did you grow up? I was born in southern California but growing up my family bounced back and forth between California and Minnesota. If I had to choose, I’d consider my childhood home to be good old sunny California.

Where did you go to school? After doing some undergrad work at Orange Coast College in California, God directed my path to Victory Bible College in Tulsa Oklahoma where I earned my diploma in Ministry with a focus in Cross Cultural Studies and interned overseas in several countries as a missionary.

Who’s in your family? My whole world is contained within a spunky little boy named Bennett. He is my miracle! Bennett and I are blessed to be surrounded by so many friends and family who love us so well.

What’s your favorite thing about Melissa UMC? That we welcome ALL and love ALL. Behind the walls of MUMC you will only find love, acceptance, and the chance to be welcomed exactly as you are.

What are you happiest doing when you’re not working? Any time I am surrounded by my family, I am in my happy place. We often find ourselves up and my parents lake house. Being on the water fishing with my Dad and my son fills my heart!

The best place to find me on Sunday morning is connecting with our families with children or youth. I might be in the worship space in the prayground, in the nursery or in the youth room. You’ll find me during the children’s moment in worship for sure!
