Tony Melvern

Worship Leader

Tony serves as the worship leader for One19 Ministries. After many years of playing guitar and writing music for several Top 40 bands in the Washington, D.C. metro area, God called him to a ministry in worship music, which he has now been doing for 20+ years.

Starting with the Spirit of God, his keyboard, and a drum machine, God showed favor and grew the ministry to 15 singers and musicians. The group ministered weekly in his home church and traveled throughout the States. They gladly ministered at churches with a dozen members, as well as at conferences with 12,000 to 14,000 attendees. The group had the privilege to minister with such names as Danny Chambers, Todde Lawton, and Israel Houghton.

Before joining One19 ministries, Tony was instrumental in developing and leading the contemporary worship band at Grace Church Waldorf. Tony is married to Michelle and they currently attend Compassion Christian Church in Savannah, Georgia.

You have dealt well with your servant, O Lord, according to your word.”  – Psalm 119:65

Krissel was born and raised in sunny Southern California and was heavily involved with all things music-related: singing, playing instruments, and dancing. She has consistently served on the worship bands at the churches she has attended, including her current church home as keyboardist, guitarist, drummer, and vocalist. Krissel appreciates adventure and spontaneity, so you can always count on her to hop in your car and join you for ANYTHING, especially if it involves karaoke and french fries. She aims to see the best in every individual she meets because she knows that each person is uniquely created by the Creator. Her desire in life is to serve our Father in ANY way she can, so being a part of One19 Ministries is truly a blessing.
