Be Spirit Strong!

Melissa Ebken is a pastor, coach, and author with a deep compassion for healthcare workers. After more than twenty years in ministry, Melissa has developed a program, Spirit Strong, using the GPS spiritual assessment to empower individuals - especially healthcare workers  - to build an enduring faith through growing their spiritual health. After a first career as a biologist, Melissa has unique gifts and insights on life and growth and how neuroplasticity, "brain work," opens up our minds and spirits, enabling a powerful experience of the Holy. Melissa can help you increase your emotional and spiritual carrying capacity so that you can live your life with joy and purpose.

Melissa is at home in the difficult spaces of peoples’ lives, willing to listen and to walk with those who struggle and suffer. She is a trained coach and has consulted with churches in conflict. Not your stereotypical minister, Melissa embraces the Gospel with joy and laughter as she seeks to help those around her grow in faith and understanding, always striving to leave people better than they came. An agent of wholeness, Melissa works to invite others into a space where they can understand how ridiculously loved and valued they are by a God who defies expectations.

    I’ve coached with Melissa over an extended period of time, and I have always made great progress through her coaching. She is compassionate and creative in her approach. She is an attentive listener and always “feels” present as we think together. I highly recommend Melissa as a coach!
