Aspire Speakers & Artists
Author & Speaker
Melissa is madly in love with Jesus and addicted to the study of His word. She is passionate about knowing and inspiring other women to seek Him by opening their ears to listen to His Spirit, reading His Word curiously, asking questions and clinging tightly to God through the storms of life. As a wife to Sean, and mother of four great kids, she works out her faith on a daily basis always in need of God’s Word to draw her back to the things of first importance.

Song Writer, Worship Leader
Sitting down to talk with worship artist Jaime Jamgochian you quickly realize she is a woman of faith who God is using in many different ways through her music and message. It’s immediately evident she has a passion to see people know how much God loves them and a desire to see that reality change their lives—because it has changed hers.
Jaime came to know the Lord at 21 while studying music at Berklee College of Music in Boston. God completely changed her life and it is her greatest desire to see people encounter Jesus in a real way.
From Boston Jaime ended up in Seattle where she was a worship leader for several years and began writing her own worship songs. It was during that time in Seattle that Jaime signed with Centricity Records and went on to record 3 albums with them. She then moved to Nashville, TN where she still calls home and continues to travel throughout the US and internationally leading people in worship, singing songs of hope and sharing a message of finding your value and purpose in Christ.
