Melissa Gibson Smith – President, Executive Director and Founder
Specializing in pastoral care and energy healing, Melissa has a passion for artists; her heart is to see creativity fostered and supported on an emotional, physical, and spiritual level. That dream is how Epiphany Space came to be. As the former VP Manager of Executive Dining for Lehman Brothers, a professional chef, and ordained minister, Melissa has a long history of caring for others with grace and, of course, her impressive organizational skills! She’s an alum of Welton Academy, Global Awakening’s Summer School of Supernatural Ministry and Global Legacy’s Leadership Development Program, and a member of the Apostolic Network of Global Awakening.
Melissa also supports coworkers at Epiphany Space with inner healing prayer, where she follows the leading of the Holy Spirit to come alongside artists and get to the root of personal obstacles you may be facing, receive deliverance and healing, and discern God’s voice for yourself. She believes in wholeness for each individual, and is so gifted in helping people discover their God-given identity, and helping them learn to hear God’s voice. She creates a safe space of love, belonging, play, and creativity, which permeates the atmosphere of Epiphany Space for everyone who stops by.
Melissa and her husband Brennan moved to Los Angeles in 2008. They are the proud parents of Viola, who serendipitously was born just a few days before Epiphany Space opened it’s first Hollywood location in 2013.
