Reach Boston (Northeast District Church Plant)
Awaken City Church (awakenboston.org)
Melinda Priest, from Michigan, has felt a calling from God to begin a church plant in Jamaica Plain, on the outskirts of Boston. Church multiplication has been a desire of her heart since high school. In preparation for this call, Melinda has become an ordained Wesleyan pastor and has a Master of Divinity from Wesley Seminary with a specialty in Multiplication. The core group of Awaken Church is presently meeting in Jamaica Plain and officially began its ministry in September, 2019. Melinda’s husband, Jason, and their two children, have all relocated to Massachusetts.
