Welcome to Living in 3D! I’m Rev. Shirley Lynn DeMerchant and I live in Woodstock, NB, Canada. I desire to live my life to the fullest under the lordship of Christ and I’m looking for others who desire the same. The purpose of Living in 3D is to inspire and encourage believers to love God more, to go deeper in their faith and understanding of scripture, and to be intentional in their habits and choices so they fulfill God’s purpose for their lives and for His world.
I am a graduate of Acadia Divinity College in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, and am ordained in the Convention of Atlantic Baptist Churches. My ministry experience includes:
– serving as a staff worker with Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship (IVCF) in St. John’s, Newfoundland
– serving with the Overseas Missionary Fellowship (OMF) in South Korea where I taught Conversational English and was pastor of the English ministry in a Korean Presbyterian Church
– serving as Senior Pastor of Stevens Road United Baptist Church in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia for eight years
– serving on the Women’s Inter-Church Council of Canada (WICC) for eight years as a council member and presently as President (2016-2018).
At this time in my life, I am focusing on writing and developing an online ministry. This provides the flexibility I need to care for family members. My interests include reading, preaching, teaching, missions and justice issues.
I would be interested in knowing more about you. What helps you grow spiritually? What are your concerns and challenges? Please feel free to contact me and let me know how I can best serve you.
