K.R. Mele’s greatest calling and joy since he gave his life to Christ has been as a husband and father. Married for thirty years, he and his wife, Gina, have two children. Their son, Luke and his wife Nikki reside in California. Their daughter, Olivia and her husband TJ live in Florida. K.R. served as a Children’s Pastor in two churches before his family planted Family Life of Penns Valley in central Pennsylvania. Both he and Gina are involved in overseas work with Haven of Hope Global Ministries. K.R. published his first book Don’t Quit in 2015. He also began evangelistic biking ministry, Rock-n-Roll Ministries, and has twice led cross-country bicycle missions trips.
