Merle and Cheree planted an inner city church in Woodstock, South Africa. Then after living in South Africa for 11 years, they received a clear word of the Lord sending them back to the USA. Knowing that this was an assignment from God, they relocated to the USA. Since then, Merle served as the pioneering director of HarvestNet School of Supernatural Ministry during their first year back in the States. They wrote a chapter in the church planting book The Invitation which you can read here. Merle’s latest book, Encountering the Supernatural was coauthored with Larry Kreider and Kevin Kazemi.
Merle and Cheree Shenk are parents to five children, and live in Lititz, PA.
