Melissa Pallotta (DIRECTOR OF PRAYER AND INTERCESSION) had a radical encounter with God when she was 27 years old that changed the trajectory of her life from pursuing the things of the world to pursuing the will of God. As a result, she chose to leave the business world to raise five children with her husband, Shawn. Since 2009, Melissa has functioned as a worship leader, director of intercession and missions in a local body, and as a personal intercessor for other ministries and businesses. Intercession is the core of who God made her to be. She also enjoys teaching, mentoring, training, and equipping others to live out the will of God in all walks of life. She was ordained with Dr. Randy Clark under the Apostolic Network of Global Awakening in 2017. She is also President of two companies: Chayil LLC (Hebrew meaning virtue, strength, power, warrior), which imports products from Israel, and Declarewear Apparel, which designs, prints and sells T-shirts to support missionaries and ministries. In 2010, Abner met Shawn and Melissa. Soon after, she was led by the Lord to pray for Abner and the ministry of For Such A Time As This. A formal ministry of intercession was established and there are currently over 150 intercessors joined together in prayer for the ministry.
