Howard and Kathy Merrell
Howard and Kathy Merrell spent most of their adult lives in small town church ministry where they were privileged to lead Covington Bible Church into significant mission endeavors, including partnering with LMUSA. After their retirement from CBC, an unexpected call led them to serve at Pacific Islands University (PIU), a small Christian college serving the people of Micronesia, from its campus in Guam. PIU continues the work started by a past generation of pioneer Liebenzell missionaries, who evangelized and planted churches in Chuuk, Palau, and Yap. Howard served as President of the school, while Kathy served as campus host, mentor to the women students, and receptionist. Both Kathy and Howard were also privileged to teach as part-time instructors.
Now back in the U.S., Howard and Kathy have taken on a role offering member care to LMUSA missionaries. Believing the local church is key to Great Commission ministry, the Merrell’s are available to call on their lifetime of experience to help and challenge churches to mobilize missionaries and their supporters to “go and make disciples of all nations.”
The Merrell’s have two sons, and seven grandchildren, all of whom live in mainland USA
