Vision & Mission


Mercy Ministries exists to befriend and serve those on the edges of society so we can see, hear, embrace, and live in the extraordinary goodness of Jesus – together.


We seek to be present in our community and collaboratively come alongside our neighbors in sharing our gifts, caring for the vulnerable, and seeking the shalom of our city. We seek to reverse the cycle of poverty through housing, education, health and wellness, and vocational training

Our Distinctive

Mercy Ministries’ holistic transformation is found in the proclamation and demonstration of the Gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ. Our love for the word of God and our love for the world are not at odds, but work together in holistic mission. Fundamentally, to ignore the world is to betray the word of God which commissions us out to love and serve the world. To ignore the word of God is to have nothing to bring to the world.


“POVERTY is rooted in broken relationships, so the solution to poverty is rooted in Jesus’ death and resurrection to put all things in right relationship again.”

– Brian Fikkert

He has shown you, O man, what is good. And, what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.



Quality & Integrity

We meet challenges with quality services while practicing integrity at every step.

Holistic View of Life

Every person is created in the image of God and is wonderfully complex.

Mercy & Justice

True justice creates space for love, growth, and truth.

Community & Connectedness

We exist with one another and for one another.


Every life can be transformed through the Gospel and living according to God’s word.


We move forward and are better together.

Developing Leaders

Every person has influence. Leaders are developed through embracing servanthood.

Dependence & Prayer

We must depend on God to give us the creativity needed to reach the unreachable.

“And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

Matthew 22:37-39
