Melissa Espat is the director of Campus Ministry at St. John’s College Junior College, Belize City. I am first an educator by profession with degrees in English Education and Secondary Education from the University of North Carolina Wilmington and Galen University in Belize. With over twenty years of experience in the classroom, ranging from Catholic high school education to university level education, her vocation is strengthened by the dynamic and diverse students she encounters daily.
As the director of Campus Ministry, she believes in the mantra of meeting students where they are. In knowing who the students truly are, they can find God in all things. Her time in the office of Campus Ministry has definitely brought her closer to God through the participation of the 19th Annotation and planning of the college’s retreats. She is an active member of St. Martin de Porres Parish–a Jesuit apostolate in Belize, serving the southside of Belize City.
