Dena has a heart for serving those experiencing food insecurity in the Melissa area. Throughout scripture we are told to care for, be kind to, and pursue the poor and needy. She finds joy in this calling and being used in this way. She became the volunteer coordinator of Melissa Community Outreach (MCO) in 2015, and is currently the director. Dena is very excited about MCO's partnership with 25 Project for the purpose of serving those in need in Jesus’ name.
Dena and her husband, Matt, are both graduates of Baylor University. They and their twin girls have lived in Melissa for 14 years, and attend and serve at The Parks Church Melissa.
