Meet Our TEAM

Patricia Bushart Merrell
Director of Outreach and Development
A small-town Tennessee girl, Author of Jesus Loves You Most w/Patricia Merrell (a devotional source), President and co-founder of G7:14-THE MOVEMENT (a non-profit devoted to bringing unity across denominations in revival and prayer),  Patricia, lives with her family in Brownsville TN. She and her husband, Chuck have 4 sons, 4 daughters-in-love and 12 grandchildren.
Patricia loves gospel music, from bluegrass to Southern Gospel and contemporary (it’s all about Praising Jesus). Her passion is Evangelism both  written and spoken. She adores time with family, painting and repurposing, furniture and odd finds.
Her greatest desire, besides one day seeing Jesus, is to love on people and show them the love, Grace, and mercy of Christ. She is always open to opportunities to be His witness.
The Drifted Drum is honored to have her involved in all of our endeavors from professional partnership development to taking the platform sharing her own incredible story of how God completely restored her from a life of drugs, despair, and destruction.
