In the gospel, Jesus makes us family, so that's what we've become: brothers and sisters who are committed to loving each other, serving in the local church, and partnering together for gospel advance.
Patti Rosell is a wife and mother of four. She is trained as a clinical social worker, passionate about relational connection and the stories that shape us. These skills have been re-purposed in recent years as her energy has been in serving the local church and towards the flourishing of her home. She participated and now co-leads the Kalos Track. She has been a member of Seven Mile Road Church for twelve years and lives with her family in Melrose, Massachusetts.
Matthew Kruse is one of the pastors of Seven Mile Road Melrose. He and his wife Grace grew up just north of Boston and they have four kids whom you'd love. He's a kinda boring guy, but does love the gospel, his church, his family, reading books, and a pickup game here and there. Through some wild and unexpected grace, Matthew planted the original Seven Mile Road, and no one has benefited more from the church coming into existence than him.
Allyson Schanck is a baker by day and a podcast engineer by night. She is an introvert who loves reading, listening to podcasts, and exploring Boston's restaurant scene with her husband Joshua. She has been a member of Seven Mile Melrose since 2012 where she co-leads a Gospel Community and participated in the Kalos Track.
Heather is a wife and mother and serves as Ministries Coordinator and Mission Catalyst at Seven Mile Melrose. Her work includes helping and serving our Kalos Team, a diaconal community that partners with our pastors in seeing that every woman Jesus gives us is valued, loved, and gospeled. She is a whirlwind of energy, warmth, and hospitality. Heather and her husband Michael have been married since 2012 and have planted themselves in Massachusetts along with their quickly growing baby boy.
