Sean Merrill
Administrative Assistant

Sean Merrill graduated from Teen Challenge Brockton in 2014. Sean was a licensed journeyman electrician with a wife, child, home and successful business. One day he took a pill that his younger brother Corey offered him. That one choice dramatically changed the next ten years of his life. After his brother died from a heroin overdose and with his life in a shambles, Sean cried out to God and ended up at Teen Challenge. Working in the Program Development office of the Brockton program while a student, Sean developed a heart to give back to the ministry that saved his life.  Sean brings a high level of enthusiasm, precise detail and a tireless servant spirit to his position.
