Hillary Merwin

Hillary is a missionary in Bogota, Colombia. Having grown up in the church, she struggled with assurance of salvation for many years. It wasn’t until college at a Passion Conference in Atlanta that God opened her eyes to her need for his grace and that she was created for his glory. In that she found great joy and peace. Hillary enjoys music and getting to know people personally.

Hillary is part of a church-planting team engaging in holistic ministry to seek the welfare of Bogota. More than anything, her ministry is about discipleship, worship, and dispensing grace to a world in need. Hillary has a passion to share the gospel and see urban centers transformed by God’s power.
