    They moved to Grande Prairie in 2011, sensing the call of God to be joined to Victory Church On The Rock. Kelly and Melody have a passion for seeing the call and gifts of God upon people be expressed to honor God and bless others. Their heart is to build a community of worshippers that truly worships in Spirit and Truth, having deep roots in the love of God; a Worship Arts family that loves and honors each other, loves the Church and leaders, and facilitates an encounter with the Living God!
