Melissa Perrigo
Ship Runner (Operations)

Melissa is originally from Cleveland, Ohio, raised in a Lutheran home and also attended Lutheran schools. On a whim after college she moved to Los Feliz, California, building and establishing a career in the business sector, for the most part.  Her path has not always been easy, facing many adversities along the way—a bad business partnership leading to many financial hardships, addiction issues, and other personal problems.  Yet while enduring life’s lessons she did have faith, while admittedly blocking having an actual personal relationship with Jesus. But God is persistent and pesky, drawing Melissa back to him in various ways over the years…then in early 2016 within minutes of sitting and listening at a BG Nights service, she immediately felt a calling to serve with Beautiful Gate and help make disciples!  She happily volunteers in assisting with various operational aspects of BG, and loves being a part of this community.  Melissa is usually on the go maybe traveling, engaging with friends, going to shows or events, finding a good restaurant, enjoying the fun of LA…
