“Our recording studios are busier than ever before,” says Grant Hoeppner, Production Coordinator here at Square One.
To accommodate the increase, Eli Melsness has been hired as a Production Assistant. Eli first came to us last fall as a practicum student from Canadian Mennonite University (CMU). Now that he has completed his internship with us, we are thrilled to be able to hire him full-time.
Eli was just 4 years old when he first decided to follow Jesus. He attended Linden Christian School in Winnipeg from grade 7-12. After High School, he went to South Africa with CMU’s Ottatown Discipleship School. Of those two settings, Eli says, “that’s where I stared making faith my own.”
While participating in Ottatown, he heard about the Communications and Media program at CMU. One of his professors there was David Balzer (host of a popular radio show at Square One from 1997 to 2008), who connected him with Square One for his practicum. Eli began his new role as full-time staff on May 1.
Production Assistant Eli Melsness records the audio podcast, A Skoop of Life, with host Sherryl Koop in Studio B.
