Melvin C. Pohlkotte II was born 1934, the middle child of a civil engineer and a schoolteacher. Jobs were scarce but infrastructure was a high priority in the years immediately following the great depression.

Burned as an eight-year-old, Mel was held back in the third grade. Suffering a diving accident as a 15-year-old, he faced a life of partial paralysis. But God had other plans.

Mel spent more than 65 years promoting skill training with focus on industrial, commercial, and residential maintenance skill transfer. Facilitating with materials in many forms and formats. His preference has always been “earn while you learn”, with no accumulated educational debt.

In 2003, recognizing the shift in national emphasis, Mel enrolled in and graduated from Master’s School of Divinity, earning a master’s in Biblical Studies. (Counseling emphasis). And in 2006 he enrolled in and graduated from Covington Theological Seminary with a doctor’s degree in Ministry.
