About Melvin Gaines

I am a communications professional, author and speaker on faith matters, business and professionalism.  My philosophy is “excellence in leadership-by-example with integrity and without compromise.”

I have served as President of the National Association of Credit Management, Greater Akron (OH), and have held memberships with the National Association of Black AccountantsACA International ® (American Collectors Association) and the Commercial Law League of America.

I presently serve as Church Administrator and Sunday school instructor at Akron Alliance Fellowship Church in Akron, Ohio.  I teach adult Sunday school and facilitate a number of bible studies and church cell group sessions.  Every now and then, I fill in for the pastor with a sermon.

I am a graduate of The University of Akron with a degree in Business and Organizational Communication, and earned a Master’s degree in Christian Studies at Crown College, St. Bonifacius, Minnesota.  I am involved in Clinical Pastoral Education studies for possible full or part-time chaplaincy.

I am a NEO native who loves to roller skate, and I am married to my lovely childhood sweetheart, Lynn.
