2014 Yearly Meeting Speaker: Noah Baker Merrill

noahwinter-2_2Noah Baker Merrill seeks to be faithful in the living Quaker tradition of gospel ministry—the practical spiritual work of encouraging faithfulness and awakening hearts. Putney Friends Meeting in Vermont has released him for service encouraging the Quaker movement in our time – and the future of Friends.

Noah is a founder of Quaker Voluntary Service, which provides opportunities for transformational service and witness grounded in Quaker faith community. In 2009, Utne Reader magazine recognized him as one of “50 Visionaries Who Are Changing Your World.” In April 2012, Noah offered the plenary worship address on behalf of North American Friends at the Sixth World Conference of Friends in Kenya. He serves as Secretary of New England Yearly Meeting.
