Melissa Miller Promoted to The Gathering Center Director

Carbondale, Colorado 7/29/2014

Long-time local, Melissa Miller, has been promoted to Director of The Gathering Center at The Orchard. She will be taking over as Scott Robinson leaves after five years of working with groups, planners and families throughout the valley to coordinate their special events.  He will be taking time to spend more time with his wife and twins.

Melissa has been part of The Orchard team since 2010 where she has been instrumental in assisting Lead Pastor Charley Hill as the Ministry Coordinator, leading the Women’s Ministry and jumping in whenever needed.  “We are excited to have Melissa bring her event experience talents from her time as Event Director at Aspen Glen, plus years of time in the event rental industry,” said Charley Hill. Melissa will continue her responsibilities of Ministry Coordinator in supporting the pastoral staff and lay ministry leaders.

In addition to her time at Aspen Glen, many know Melissa from her generous donation of her tasty cupcakes from her company Killer Cakes. Now she is ready to step into her new role.  “I am excited to expand the mission of The Orchard while working with groups throughout the valley on their specials events here at The Gathering Center.  It is such a beautiful venue that always surprises hosts and guests with its spectacular views and light and lovely space,” Melissa said.  “I’m also happy to announce that we will be expanding the operations of our coffee shop, Common Grounds.  It is a great place to grab a cup of coffee, tea or espresso while visiting with friends or using the free Wi-Fi.  We are also working on plans for First Friday artist receptions, open mic nights and more, so if you are a local artist and would like to find out if your work is a good fit for Common Grounds, please contact me.”
