Niah is a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and performer born in McMinnville, OR. Growing up on the road since he was 3 years old, he travelled with his family’s third-generation music ministry (the Musical Merrills, which eventually became Merrill Ministries). When Niah arrived at Bob Jones University, he gained more stage experience by performing in the Classic Players drama troupe, Wind Band, University Chorale, as well as several student leadership offices while earning his B.A degree in Mass Media. During his graduate work (M.A. in Organizational Communication), he managed one of BJU’s theaters and worked alongside faculty and student-led productions. Upon graduation in May of 2012, Niah rejoined Merrill Ministries to lead the music and children’s programs along with his wife, Allisha. As a member of the International Juggler’s Association, Niah’s skills in comedy and juggling have been a unique asset to connect with people of all ages. Niah transitioned to a position as the Southwest Area Director for Wycliffe Associates where he and Allisha hosted 170 events all over the west coast raising funds for Bible translation projects. Now, Niah and Allisha’s goal is to inspire concert audiences to use their own abilities to the fullest potential for God’s glory.
