Gibson, Bill & Joy - USA


Pathway Discipleship has a mission is to fulfill Christ’s command to make disciples. We  do this with Christ as our example. Just as He shared his life with his disciples, we also seek to invest in the lives of lost and hurting people.

Reach. Invest. Multiply. 

Bringing seekers to a saving knowledge of the Lord, enabling them to grow in their personal relationship with Christ, and training them to disciple others. This process is individualized for each disciple as we meet them, and help them set and achieve spiritual goals. God’s word, prayer, faith sharing, and accountability is the core focus of our mission.
It is our belief that true discipleship is not a program or even a curriculum, but the overlay of Christ’s life on ours, and our lives on others. In this way we  see people come to know and love Christ, commit their lives to Him, and invest in discipling others, all to the glory of God.

Merrill, Niah & Allisha - USA


The Merrills travel full-time in ministry calling their RV “home.” Their rig is fully equipped to carry instruments, sound and video systems while also functioning as their overnight accommodations.

God has uniquely gifted Niah and Allisha to serve the local church. While dating in 2011, Niah and Allisha were deeply involved in a thriving church plant in Powdersville, SC and were later commissioned to travel full-time in ministry after their marriage. Over the years, they have worked together with the Merrill Evangelistic Team (Niah’s father’s ministry) and Wycliffe Associates in the work of Bible translation. God used these opportunities to broaden their ministry experiences and give them a greater burden for missions and Bible poverty around the world. In January of 2016, God brought them to the next transition and step of faith–starting the new traveling music ministry in which they currently serve. Together, they have had the opportunity to minister all across the United States as well as Italy, Nepal and Israel.
