Merritt, Stephen M.

Stephen received his call of God to become a missionary at the age of fourteen. Two years after this call Bennie and Pat Blunt, former missionaries to Samoa, visited his home church, Cornerstone UPC, in Winchester, Virginia. They invited his pastor back to Samoa where he was to preach their national youth camp. His pastor invited him to join him on this trip which introduced him to missions. In 2006 he enrolled at Gateway College of Evangelism, graduating in 2008 with an Associate Degree. He was approved on the Associates In Missions program in 2010 to the nation of Austria, serving with the Robinettes. He was there until late 2013 when he transferred to the Pacific Region to work in Samoa as a Bible school teacher with, once again, Bennie and Pat Blunt. In 2014 he was appointed as an Associate Missionary to New Zealand and in September 2017, he was appointed as an intermediate missionary. He has assisted one of the national pastors, Wayne Goodare, in the further development of the South Island church in the city of Christchurch. He was elected as the South Island campus dean for the OIC GATS National Bible College of New Zealand. Later he was appointed as the National Youth President over both islands of New Zealand. Upon returning to New Zealand he will be heading to one of the major college campus cities in Dunedin to endeavor to start a work there.
