The Rev. Jonathan Melton, Chaplain
Jonathan has stewarded the St. Francis House community as chaplain since 2012, developing ministry with students and overseeing day to day operations. He loves prayer and coffee, and he'll gladly meet you for either, or anything else on your mind. More about Jonathan.
Kelly Green, Office Coordinator
Kelly manages the SFH office, building maintenance, and event scheduling. You can find her in the office Monday through Thursday from 1-5 PM. She is a freelance writer with an outstanding love for dogs. Though a native Midwesterner, Kelly is new to Madison.
Kelsey Johnson, House Fellow
Kelsey is new to Madison after spending a year volunteering in Palestine. She has a heart for social justice and community organizing. Kelsey also enjoys reading nonfiction and writing poetry, playing basketball and contemplating her love/hate relationship with running, meeting new friends, and anything outdoors. She is grateful to be part of the Saint Francis community!
Katie Menke, House Fellow
Katie is a newbie middle school teacher. She lived abroad for almost 5 years in Ecuador, Argentina, and Spain, but returned to the good ol' Midwest to get her masters in teaching at UW. She loves serendipitous adventures, meeting new people, throwing pottery, discussing thought-provoking films and books, and hiking in Wisconsin state parks. She is excited to be part of the St. Francis community this year!
Loren Lock, House Fellow
Realizing she was lackluster at adulting, Loren decided to go back to school and will begin a master of population health degree this year. When she's not driving her trusty Buick LeSabre to see family around the state or visiting her best friends (who happen to live everywhere but Wisconsin), she’s probably biking around the East Side or stalking the humane society website for cute doggos.
Student and Director Boards
Members of the Student Leadership Team serve as visible leaders for the rest of the community and make an intentional commitment to lead and direct St. Francis House community life.
Student Leadership Team
The Board of Directors is made up of area church leaders, SFH alumni, and ministry supporters. The Board assists the chaplain and student community in making decisions about the direction of the ministry, building and financial matters, and in representing campus ministry throughout the diocese and beyond it.
