Since her family became part of Truth Baptist Church in the fall of 2014, Melody has loved getting to know the people in this church, as well as becoming involved in all the ministries she can! She has been assisting with the annual teen dramas since 2012 and began working as Pastor Harper’s administrative assistant in the fall of 2016. As one of the creators of our church website she enjoys making continual improvements to its functionality, finding ways to make the site better serve the church’s needs, and (attempting) to keep it up to date with announcements and content updates.
Melody loves being the oldest of the 11 van Achterberg children, and working for her father’s South Windsor-based IT & web design company as a website developer & sales representative! She could also sing worship songs, talk about Myers-Briggs personality types, and talk about Jesus pretty much all the time and forever.
