At Morning Hope Ministries it is our desire that you live a life that is victorious, full of hope and peace.  God loves you so much and cares about everything that concerns you.

The name Morning Hope Ministries was derived from the scripture …Weeping may endure for the night, But joy comes in the morning. Ps 30:5.   Many years ago during one of the most difficult times of her life, founder Melanie Crowel was crying out to the Lord in the midst of her pain.  At that moment she had a vision of a sunrise and felt an overwhelming peace come over her.  She sensed the Lord comforting her as He reminded her of what the scripture says in Psalm 30:5.  He then told her that her MORNING WAS ON THE WAY!

That encounter with the Lord was a pivotal moment in her life; pushing her forward and giving her the strength to carry on.

Melanie Crowel – Founder of Morning Hope Ministries 


Melanie Crowel is a native Texan, born and raised in Nacogdoches Texas. She currently lives in Houston, TX with her amazing husband Ronald Crowel and is the mother of two wonderful adult children; her daughter Amity and son Terry.

She accepted the Lord at a very young age, was baptized in water at eight and baptized in the Holy Spirit at fifteen. Her faith in God was first ignited when she was seven years old and her father gave his heart to the Lord. Melanie had been praying for her alcoholic father every night since she was four. She remembers her prayers being answered and his day of redemption so vividly. In honor of her father, she wrote a song to commemorate this gift from God and titled it “Faith of a Child”.

Melanie was a victim of domestic violence for sixteen years as a young adult. One day when she felt like she could no longer bear the burden any longer she cried out to the Lord in utter desperation. At that very moment God gave her a vision of a sunrise and she heard him say “Your sunrise is on the way”. Soon after, by the hand of God, Melanie was able to get her and her children out of the harmful environment that had entrapped them for so long. Her testimony coupled with her passion to help and encourage others led her to launch Morning Hope Ministries, a ministry focusing on ministering to women.

She has over twenty five years of ministry experience beginning with her volunteering in the children and youth ministries at her home town Assemblies of God church in Nacogdoches.  Melanie has worked in a professional and ministry capacity for three internationally known ministries; Benny Hinn Ministries / World Healing Center Church, New Beginnings Church / Pastors Larry and Tiz Huch and Joel Osteen Ministries / Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas

During her time on staff at Lakewood Church she has been involved in ministry by teaching weekend classes, leading staff bible studies, speaking for the Women’s ministry and special events, and was responsible for the quarterly Women’s Encounters.

Melanie is an Ordained Minister through Joan Hunter Ministries.  She is a Public Speaker and Vocalist and is asked to minister at various conferences, churches and special events.
