Having spent over a decade leading and serving in both ministry and missions, Melonie Elequin has a big heart for people and the world. She's had the privilege of integrating her faith and vocation, leveraging her skills of teaching and administration as the Dean of Academics for the Schools of Logic and Rhetoric at Veritas Academy. She is excited to share about a platform called Switchboard that allows all believers to integrate their faith and vocation as they discover their role in God's global story. Melonie is married to Scott Elequin who is the executive director of Switchboard. They have three adult children and are excited to be expecting their first grandchild.

Melonie will be speaking about Switchboard, a platform for connecting believers globally so those with needs and those who can help know each other. Switchboard matches everyday believers to the mission field so that everyone can bring their best to make a Great Commission impact. Melonie will share how each woman can bring her skills, talents, and experiences and share them with the global body of Christ, connecting for just a one-hour conversation to make both a tangible and eternal impact.

    Laura Benton

    Laura was born and raised in the sunny state of CALIFORNIA!!! She grew up in Southern California, where she enjoyed her summers at the beach, and then moved to Northern California, where she attended college at San Jose State. She earned her degree in Child and Adolescent Development with a minor in Mathematics, but let’s be honest; she mostly went to school to play water polo. Laura, her husband, Dan, and her three girls, Cassidy, Libby, and Emily, made the trek out to Austin in August 2018. It is Laura’s great joy to have fun serving people, which is what she is doing as a ministry assistant for Embrace and Women's Ministries. While she may never get used to the weather in Texas, Laura still enjoys playing water polo, being silly with her kids, and finding any reason to go on an adventure!
