This year's speaker is…

Dr. Carol F. Merritt is the eldest child born to Rev. Dr. Carl and Mayme L. Flewellen. Growing up in a pastor’s home, Carol has been involved in ministry her entire life. Born in Columbus, Ohio, she spent her formative years in Bermuda where her parents served as missionaries for the Church of God for over six years, prior to moving to Evanston, Illinois. After graduating from high school, she moved to St. Louis, Missouri to pursue pre-med at Washington University. While attending college, she fell in love and married Miki Merritt in August, 1980. She graduated from Washington University in 1982 with an A.B. degree in Biology and from the University of Missouri-St. Louis in 1989 with a Doctor of Optometry degree. She served on the faculty as Assistant Professor and Center Director for over eight years.

Pastor Carol Merritt serves the New Cote Brilliante Church of God in St. Louis as Co-Pastor, Minister of Music and Worship, and is a gifted choir director, praise and worship leader and pianist. She has a strong teaching ministry, and uses this spiritual gift to teach Bible Study, Sunday School and multiple discipleship classes. Her passion is working with young women, teaching the principles of Titus 2:3. An ordained minister with the Church of God, Anderson, Indiana, Pastor Carol also is gifted to proclaim the Word, incorporating her gift of teaching to help make the scriptures easy to understand.

Dr. Carol Merritt believes that the Lord has called her to a unique purpose, “to help people to see both physically and spiritually”, and she uses this to guide her life and ministry. She is a true partner to her husband of 37 years, Pastor Miki, as they pastor the church together. They travel conducting conferences, workshops and preaching engagements. Dr. Merritt has served the Church of God on several national committees and board assignments.

Professionally, Dr. Merritt owns a solo private optometric practice in Florissant, Missouri. She is the Past President of the National Optometric Association and was named Optometrist of the Year in 2001. She currently serves as Past President of the National Optometric Foundation and is active on the Board. She has received numerous awards and recognition for her work teaching and mentoring students, traveling extensively promoting increasing diversity in the optometric profession. In addition to her church and work commitments, she is most proud to be the mother of four adult sons, Miki Maurice (Emily), Sean Christopher, Carl Edward and Joshua Caleb and delighted to have three granddaughters, Marley Jackson, Rachel Christina and Mikayla Marie Elaine.
