Merritt Johnston


Merritt has been serving in full-time ministry since college when she co-founded SAGE Ministries, where she now serves as President. When Merritt is not traveling with SAGE, she has served on staff at several churches, including four years as the Director of Women’s Ministries at Lake Pointe Church. The leadership of Lake Pointe, recognized by Outreach Magazine as one of the 100 largest churches in America, facilitated Merritt’s ministerial licensing service in 2005.

In addition to speaking, Merritt has continued to pursue her love of writing. Her work has been featured in publications like Leading Student Ministry and Devozine, and she has self-published two Bible studies in a series entitled Godly Girl Revolution.

In January 2010, Merritt began serving as the pastoral care coordinator at Scott and White Hospital-Brenham, where she oversees a team of volunteer chaplains and provides spiritual care for both patients and staff.

Merritt and her husband, Jeremy, make their home in Brenham, TX, where they are currently raising two rambunctious sons named Josiah and Silas and two renegade dachshunds named Aidan and Adelaide.
