We want to build up the work of the Kingdom: to help spread the gospel, disciple, love, and come alongside others; the way God intended us to do. This is our story.


When I was a child, I witnessed my mother sharing our home with people who were in need. Throughout my time of studying, I moved in and out of various homes and had to learn to adjust to being in different environments. Living in someone else's home is not always easy as you don't often have a place or space that you can truly call your own. Sometime's that would make you feel very uncomfortable, which would bring feelings of not being welcomed. 


Throughout my life, random people would open up to me about their lives, even adults would share their personal situations with me.  God always gave me words to counsel them.


From a young age, I have had a vision for building; from restaurants, to coffee shops, then homes to businesses.  I have always been a dreamer, seeing the bigger picture, seeing and believing that God is capable of doing it all.


Constant home transitions were part of my life from an early age. Living with my parents, then moving in with my grandparents as a baby, then to multiple different places. Circumstances at home led me to fully surrender my life to the Lord. Throughout this journey, the Lord allowed me to grow and heal.  He taught me what true hospitality meant from different perspectives and it pushed me to understand how  other people live, and how different life experiences can impact you having a place of your own called "home".


Love is patient, love is kind, it is not jealous; love does not brag, it is not arrogant. It does not act disgracefully, it does not seek its own benefit; it is not provoked, does not keep an account of a wrong suffered, it does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; it keeps every confidence, it believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8. 


We’ve all heard these verses spoken at a wedding or two.  The truth is, when Paul was writing this, he was speaking to the church as a whole. Those characteristics of love are to be shown towards one another.  Both Melina and I shared the heart of the Lord when it came to friendships and once we met, we knew immediately that God had ordained our friendship and it was built on Him.  

When God calls you, where do you go? The kingdom is lacking in places for people who say yes to the Lord to have a “church” around them to grow into what the Lord has called them to be. Our story together is one where when the Lord gave instruction, our environments caused issues with moving forward. Caused a war between the call,and the overall peace of the Lord, to walk out our Yes. House Upon a Hill is to create an environment for anyone, in any situation to understand the Love of God on a new level. One where relationships are the focus, not religion. To learn to hear God’s voice, know Him, and walk with Him daily. And to partner with those who come, where they are at, so they can receive the tools they need to move forward in what God has called them to do. 

 As soon as he had finished speaking to Saul, the soul of Jonathan was knit to the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul. 2 And Saul took him that day and would not let him return to his father's house. 3 Then Jonathan made a covenant with David, because he loved him as his own soul. 4 And Jonathan stripped himself of the robe that was on him and gave it to David, and his armor, and even his sword and his bow and his belt. 5 And David went out and was successful wherever Saul sent him, so that Saul set him over the men of war. And this was good in the sight of all the people and also in the sight of Saul's servants.

1 Samuel 18:1-5


When God provided a home, people were sent to stay just as both of us were sent to others. In 2021, the Lord said go, and all of our stuff was packed up in storage, and we have been staying with other people ever since. This has been a new layer of transition, where the understanding of a home and what “ your own space” looks like was transitioned to what we truly abide in which is the Lord. 


We never would have thought our experiences with homes would have such an impact on our life, and show us the need of how not only our lives, but so many others' lives are missing that place to call home when they truly have nowhere to go nor people that they can call family. 


We need God, and we need people. We need a resting place.


Our hearts are to give, to give what we didn't have, to be His resource and to advance the kingdom. Our hearts are for you to be loved and belong somewhere, whether you are a believer or not.
