Melinda was born in Abilene, Texas, was raised in Southeastern New Mexico, and considers West Texas home.


She graduated from Wayland Baptist University with a double major in Religious Education & Business Administration and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary with a Master of Arts degree in Religious Education with an emphasis in Childhood Education.


Melinda married her best friend, Buck in 1991 while serving as a full-time Children’s Minister in the Dallas area. She “retired” from that position when Buck graduated from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and has served as a volunteer in various capacities of children and youth ministry over the past 28 years.


Buck and Melinda have two amazing children, Micah, a sophomore at Dallas Baptist University, and Graci~Mei, who is in the 8th grade. She is humbled daily by the blessing of being their mom.


She enjoys being home with her family, reading, playing games, Ladies Bible Studies, researching homeschool and children’s curriculum, and spending time with her church family.


“I consider it a joy and extreme privilege to have this opportunity to serve the children and their families at South Seminole.” – Melinda Wheat
