Merik Fell


Director of Development

Previous Experience: 

Aurora Health Care Foundation – Foundation Development Officer (2015-2018)
I have spent the last three years working in the Walworth, Racine and Milwaukee counties. I’m working with donors and partners to raise funds for a new cancer care center and healing garden as well as advancements in cardiac and cancer care and research.

Inner City Impact – Director of Development (2003-2015) Inner City Impact reaches youth in some of the more dangerous neighborhoods in Chicago. I was proud to work with the ministry team and donors on many projects, including the opening of a new youth facility in Cicero, Illinois.

Hometown: I grew up in Elkhorn and have spent the majority of my life living in Walworth, Wisconsin. Rachel and I have been married since 2001 and we are blessed with 6 wonderful children (1 daughter and 5 sons – ages 14 to 2).

Interests: I enjoy camping with family and friends, reading great books, walking the shore path on Geneva Lake and spending time outdoors in the spring, summer and fall.

Who or what fires you up? Being a father. Working with great people. Starting something new and seeing it through.

Why Inspiration Ministries and why now? God has led me to Inspiration Ministries and I am excited to join a fantastic team and impactful ministry. IM is blessed to have made a difference for nearly 70 years and I’m looking forward to telling our story of the past and being part of an exciting future as we celebrate all that God has done.
