Kimberly Merrill - Lead Transitional Pastor

Rev. Kimberly L. Merrill grew up in Mobile, AL and received her B.A. in Marketing from the University of South Alabama. After marriage and having a family of 5, God called both she and her husband to pack up the family and go to Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Austin, Texas where she received her Master of Divinity. She was ordained in 2006, and the adventure began. She has served several churches in Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and California. Kimberly completed her Interim Training at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and is a Certified Transitional Pastor with ECO. She loves to worship God as well as encourage and equip pastors & churches. She takes delight in asking the question “Where is God in this?” As a Transitional Pastor, she enjoys helping churches discover who they are by looking at their past, embracing and dealing with their present and getting excited about their future in following Jesus Christ wherever He leads. 

Paul Merrill - Transitional Executive Pastor

Rev. Paul Merrill came to ministry as a second career. Starting as a Worship Leader in Mobile AL, then feeling the calling of God to formal ministry, he followed his wife to Seminary and received his MDiv at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary in 2007 Texas. His first call was to New Church Development in Owasso OK, then to a Senior Pastor Position in Pennsylvania for seven years. Becoming a Covenant Partner in ECO helped to clarify his passion in ministry: Helping churches “Renovate” (finding God’s best), to serve His vision for the future. He has served in Newport RI, Sumter SC and most recently in Pleasanton, CA as their transitional pastor.  

Audrey Del Campo - Assistant Pastor

Audrey loves to share the love of Jesus through worship and the word of God. Her deepest prayer is for the Holy Spirit to revive, restore and renew the Global Church as He stirs awakenings in each heart drawing everyone closer to Himself, and the Church. Her biggest inspiration and formation has been leading alongside her parents' ministry in Dunellen, NJ for the past 15 years. Audrey has an undergrad in Psychology and has earned her Masters in Christian Ministries from Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary. When she isn't in the office, Audrey enjoys going to the movies, trying out new restaurants, and no matter the season--walking along the beach. She is excited to be at NPPC and believes that the best is yet to come!
