Dr. Marchelle Lee was born in Cleveland, Ohio, and attended the Cleveland Public School System. She was raised by an abusive mother and a passive loving father. At the age of 16, she became pregnant, gave birth, and left home. Her father's love and eldest sister helped her keep her sanity. However, it was the grace of God that prevented her from committing suicide. After leaving home she managed to finish John High School Adult Education by earning her GED at 17 as a teenage mom.

Dr. Marchelle was once homeless with her two sons in Chicago, Illinois, where their only haven was an abandoned office building on East 89th and South Halsted. There was even one point in her life where she turned to drugs and alcohol to find some source of comfort. As a mother of two sons, she knew that she had to turn her life around for the sake of her family. She returned to Cleveland, Ohio, enrolled in Cuyahoga Community College, and completed an Associate Degree of Science in Nursing, and shortly afterward, she submitted her life to Jesus Christ.

After two abusive marriages, she relocated to the Greater Houston, TX area on October 28, 2003, and has served bi-vocationally as a nurse and in ministry for 16 years. She serves with James Chestnut and Associates Inc., a.k.a JCA (owned by James Chestnut III), as a Nonprofit Sales Consultant. JCA provides services to pastors, churches, nonprofits, and entities who need business services. Her previous work in prison ministry involved, Texas Department of Criminal Justice facilities such as Darrington Prison,  Pam Lynchner, TC Jester State Prison, and Re-entry housing facilities. Her ministry MDL Ministries focuses on prayer, evangelism, ministry training, public speaking, and weekly TV Broadcasting, all of which assist in spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ.  She believes, "Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might." Ecclesiastes 9:10 NIV.

In 2012 God spoke to Dr. Marchelle and said that He was going to send her to San Antonio and he wanted her to serve at Community Bible Church. In July of 2020, He did just that and she relocated to San Antonio.  She now serves in the online church ministry at Community Bible Church in San Antonio,  under the leadership of Senior Pastor Ed Newton.

Due to the Blood of Jesus and the grace of God, her accomplishments include, but are not limited to:
