MAX = to the greatest extent possible
imprint = to stay in your mind or memory
Our motto is: we maximize impact for a maximum imprint. Whether we are building usable websites, creating content, taking photographs, or handcrafting lovely gift soaps and jewelry, we aim to help people make lasting memories.
MAXimprint is the "dynamic duo" of husband and wife team: Jonathan and Melissa Maxim. We met for the first time beside an InterVarsity Welcome Table at Art School in 1993 and started serving together in 1994. We were then married in Pennsylvania on the 4th of July in 1998, and together we have 1 girl and 4 boys (ages 9 to 20).

Jon has been a Content, Publishing, Website, SEO, and Ministry Consultant since before Y2K. He holds two degrees from Rochester Institute of Technology and Lancaster Bible College. After graduating with his Bachelor of Science in Bible, Jon has continued his theological education by studying seminary-level textbooks, historic confessions, catechisms, and creeds of the faith. He has also studied Ministering God's Two Words: Law & Gospel in Preaching & Pastoral Care with Dr. Jonathan A. Linebaugh at the LIBERATE Institute, and The History of Christian Worship with The Rev. Dr. Curtis E. Leins at American Lutheran Theological Seminary.
Before moving with his family to the Corning, New York area in 2004 to help start and build a Sovereign Grace church plant, he worked as a Graphic Designer for DavCo Advertising and as a Multimedia & Show Designer for Sight & Sound Theatres in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. While in Lancaster he was an ALPHA Group Leader at his church. After moving north, he also served his church and others as a Webmaster, Graphic Designer, Resource Table Team Leader, Children's Ministry Team Leader, Sunday School Teacher, and a Wordless Book Evangelist.
Since living in the Corning region, Jon has had the opportunity to serve several entrepreneurs. He has also had the opportunity to work for two companies that were listed in Inc. Magazine as America's Fastest Growing Privately-Owned Companies; serving as a Content Creator for Kingdom and a Project Coordinator for Monk Development, creators of Ekklesia 360 and Sermon Cloud. While working for Monk, he managed many website projects for large ministries—chief among them was the website for Family Life …a friend you can turn to.
After working for Monk, Jon served as a Ministry Advisor for Church Plant Media for over a decade. During that time he has been blessed to serve countless local churches and national gospel ministries like 1517, The Gospel Coalition, Converge, Sovereign Grace Churches, ChurchPlant.com, and The American Association of Lutheran Churches.
One of the most noteworthy seasons during that decade was from 2014–2015, when Jon served Tullian Tchividjian (grandson of the late Evangelist Billy Graham) and Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church as the Editorial Director & Webmaster for LIBERATE—connecting God's inexhaustible grace to an exhausted world, through daily blog content and resources that declared over and over again that Jesus lived, died, and rose again to "set the captives free" (Luke 4:18).
After the untimely end of LIBERATE, Jon helped Daniel Emery Price relaunch Christ Hold Fast. Since then he has helped to rebrand, redesign, and redevelop many other websites, including Pirate Christian Radio for Rev. Chris Rosebrough and Copper Moon Coffee.
Jon and his wife Melissa are also Certified Agents for Cornerstone New York, a regional office of Cornerstone Payment Systems. We commit to separate our transaction processing services from the remainder of the industry by putting Christ at the cornerstone of our business. As a part of our commitment, we will not process credit card transactions for morally objectionable businesses. Cornerstone is blessed to serve numerous leading ministries across the USA.

Melissa loves people! Having grown up as a PK (Pastor's Kid), she has lived servant-ministry up close and personal since birth. Her passion is to share the one-way love of Jesus with everyone. In 1996, Melissa graduated with a BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts) in Graphic Design from Rochester Institute of Technology. The year following her graduation from RIT, she served Open Door Mission in inner-city Rochester as an Administrative Assistant.
Melissa's education and experience serving people make her a vital asset and resource in all of our branding, design, and content discussions. For every website project that we build, Melissa plays a key role in selecting and approving (and at times capturing) all of the photography and graphic design that we use. She is also actively involved with sermon transcription, content transfer/organization, and often provides feedback on new website content.
Although her full-time work as our "Domestic Engineer" keeps her busy managing our home and 5 children, she keeps her hand in the creative mix by regularly publishing family memories on Facebook and creating handcrafted gift soaps and jewelry. Her lovely gifts are available for purchase online via LuvYah Gifts and locally at the Information Center of Corning.
FUN FACT: LuvYah was the first brand we created together 20+ years ago.
