Meghan Salas
CCO Campus Minister

More or less a New Jersey Native, Meghan has a passion for the local church, missions, and college students. After several mid length missions trips in early college, the Lord made clear a calling to step into vocational ministry here in New Jersey. Meghan and her husband Sam are dreaming big about what God can do through young adults in the local church, when they really understand discipleship, missional ministry, and their giftings from the Lord.
