Anthony Melu is a Lifestyle Educator by training with a passion for health education and promotion. As a health educator for over fifteen years, Anthony had the privilege of serving in three African countries where he interacted in the mission field with believers of all age groups from student missionaries, missionary physicians, and other professionals in the service of the Lord.
Since 2016, Anthony and his family lived and served in the state of Virginia where he mostly worked in health care settings (rehabilitation, emergency, behavioral and health education centers). Anthony has also served as a mentor for at risk children in the community (regular homes, foster care homes and group homes) with their parents and guardians. He also served as a child and adolescent advocate in both school districts with educators and in the juvenile court system to facilitate rehabilitation and social skills building along with promoting healthy family reunification processes for the children and their parents.
Since moving to the state of California in 2022, Anthony was privileged to work with special education students in the San Bernardino County school district in Southern California. In this capacity, Anthony worked with the students, parents, and teachers along with their therapists in supporting the students’ academic, physical, social, and emotional development.
As a strong believer in true education, Anthony is motivated by Jesus’ model of growth and development as outlined in Luke 2:52, “ And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature, and in favor with God and man”. Anthony looks forward to being a support to Weimar Academy’s student body as they all grow into strong, mature, and balanced young Christian women and men that love and serve God.
