Mertens & Mertens Ministires
About their vision, Dennis says:
"When God first began to prepare us to be sent out as Evangelists, He instructed us to sell our house, buy a motorhome and go minister to our family members we newly discovered through Ancestry.com. I have 5 half-brothers, one half-sister, and a full sister, and Conny has one half-sister."
"I asked the Lord to confirm His Word to us by causing our house to sell quickly. It sold after being on the market ONE day! Then He began to open doors for us to minister at one after the other. Churches opened up in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Arizona, and Kansas. Next summer we will be in Kentucky with my family and Conny with hers. From there we will go wherever God leads us".
Our vision is to take the Gospel to the unsaved before Jesus returns!

I was saved Sept. 17, 1969 in Ashland, Oregon at an Assembly of God Church. At the time I was in a very popular rock band, but soon quit. After moving to Brookings, Oregon on the coast I served as a Youth Pastor and the group went from 4 kids to over 50 in a short time!
I had an opportunity to audition for the Gospel group “Andre’ Crouch and the Disciples” and was hired. I toured with them for 2 years, playing guitar. I also played on the Pat Boone Family Show.
In 1977 Constance and I were married and served in a church in Portland, Oregon. In 1991 we were called to full-time evangelistic ministry and traveled up and down the west coast preaching and singing in churches, conventions, camp meetings, revivals, prisons, tents – any place God led us to go.
I took an associate Pastor position in Salinas, California for 2 years and then another associate position for 4 years. Now Constance and I are led to go evangelize once again and will continue on that path until the Lord comes back!
"Our Father knows what we have need of before we ask. All He wants us to do is ask in faith with NO DOUBT, knowing in our hearts that He wants to bless us.
Thank You JESUS!"
About Me :
Hi! My name is Constance Mertens, and I want to tell you about myself.
I met Jesus as my Lord and Savior July of 1977 at Lake Grove Assembly of God Church. I served in that church for a long time.
Then my family moved to Aloha, Oregon to another Assembly of God Church. That is when I started helping with Women’s Ministries. I was the nursery attendant and got involved in intercessory prayer by being on the prayer chain.
My husband and I started Mertens & Mertens Ministries in the late 90’s traveling to California, Washington and Oregon. We ministered in churches, prisons, boys and girl’s homes, camp meetings, tent meetings, and conventions.
We pastored a church in Salinas, California, helped with the youth group and worship team. We pastored a church in Arcata, California for 4 yrs. and I was on the worship team with my husband, Dennis.
Now we are again being sent out by Spirit of Life Christian Center in Central Point, Oregon as an Evangelistic outreach, going wherever the Lord leads us and opens up opportunities to preach the Gospel!
From Constance& Dennis
"Because the SUV we had is not towable behind the motorhome, we needed to sell it before we left on our evangelism tour. Two days before we were due to leave, the Lord spoke to Dennis instructing him to go to Mock Ford in Grants Pass, OR and ask them to give us a spec sheet on it. We assumed the purpose of that was so we could accurately set the sale price.
One of the salesmen, and the sales manager looked at our SUV then asked if we intended to sell it. Dennis said yes, and to our great surprise and delight they offered to buy it on the spot! Not only did they give us the payoff, but they added a large bonus to it! It was the easiest transition we ever experienced!
