Melton targets ways to share God's love through archery
August 9, 2017 | Lynchburg, Va.
On this "Player Profile" video, Madison Melton, a rising junior on Liberty University's archery team, shares how she became interested in the sport and joined the Lady Flames as a freshman.
"I first got into archery about four years ago when I got my first bow," said Melton, who's originally from Goochland, Va., but graduated from Liberty Christian Academy in Lynchburg. "Originally, I got it to hunt and hunted for a few years and then when I came to Liberty last year I got on the archery team and started shooting with them."
Melton, who aspires to become an electrical engineer in the aerospace or power industries while serving as an Air Force reserve officer, looks for opportunities to be a witness at team competitions.
"I really love that when we go to meets to shoot archery that we can profess our faith in Jesus by just being a good example," she said. "I love the way that no matter where we are, we always pray before we shoot and everybody watches that. Everybody watches how we act and how we work with each other and love each other. That's a great way that we can profess our faith."
