Pastor Terrence J. Melvin

Pastor Terrence J. Melvin is the Pastor and Founder of New Solid Rock Church Ministries, Inc. which he founded with his wife, Co-Pastor Taunya A. Melvin, in November 1996. When New Solid Rock was established, there were three members, Pastor Terrence J. Melvin, Co-Pastor Taunya A. Melvin, and their daughter, Theresa. Praise the Lord, the membership has grown to what it is today.

Pastor Melvin is a role model to men of all ages. His message to all that know him is that he truly "Loves the Lord". He is truly a Man of God. Pastor Melvin is a husband to his wife, a father to his daughter, a friend to all of his family and friends, and a shepherd to his congregation. He is also a man of great stature. Pastor Melvin, not only spreads the gospel of Christ through his words and songs, but he spreads God word through the life that he lives.

Pastor Melvin was saved at a young age and accepted the Lords calling to the ministry when he was only 17 years old. He was at the age of 17, ordained a deacon at the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church under the teaching of the Late Dr. Curtis Kyle. Shortly after that, He then became a minister. Later on, he joined and become an associate minister at Triedstone F.B.H. Church under the leadership of the Late Rev. Dr. Amos N. Frazier in June of 1978. It was at Triedstone where he received most of his teaching and later was sent out to pastor his first church in October of 1991.

Before establishing New Solid Rock Church Ministries in Washington, D.C., Pastor Melvin and his wife served as pastors of Zion Hill F.B.H. Church in Norristown, PA, for four years and St. Luke FBH Church in Brooklyn, NY, for one year. After laboring both in Pennsylvania and New York, the Lord led them to start New Solid Rock Church Ministries, in the nation’s capital where he is the Senior Pastor and labors in the vineyard with his wife by his side as Co-Pastor. As the ministry grew; the Lord directed them to move the ministry to the current location in Landover Hills, MD. To God Be the Glory!

A native Washingtonian, Rev. Melvin received his early education at Jessie LaSalle Elementary School, Bertie Backus Jr. High and McKinley Technical Sr. High School where he studied music. He furthered his education at the University of the District of Columbia where he majored in Business and Accounting. Pastor Melvin was employed with the Brookings Institution for over thirty-seven (37) years, and is now with Johns Hopkins University as assistant Manager and Customer Service Supervisor of the Hopkins Fulfillment Service.

Pastor Melvin married his high school sweetheart on April 12, 1980. They are the proud parents of one daughter, Theresa Anita Melvin-Coyne and Son-in-Law, Mark Coyne.
