What an UBER Driver Taught Me About Ministry

Sep 26, 2017

By Ryan Northcutt

**(Be sure to read till the end because there's some FREE stuff for you.)

A couple of months ago I traveled to Portland, OR. While there I decided against renting a car and instead used UBER to get around. It worked great.

During one of my rides the driver shared a story about some of his recent car troubles. (I was hoping he wasn't talking about the car we were riding in.)

He said his car had been in the shop twice because "something just wasn't right." ...

I propose to you that there were seven oppressive spirits present around the arrest, trial, sentencing, and execution of Jesus. These same oppressive spirits stand arrogantly against the families of inmates and prevent them from finding hope and redemption in Christ.

Mercy Heart Helps Hurricane Harvey Victims

Sep 08, 2017

For over 20 years Mercy Heart has helped families put their lives back together after the storm of seeing a loved one go to prison. That's our mission. It's what we do.

In the wake of Hurricane Harvey there are now countless families beginning the daunting task of putting their lives back together. As I watched on television people being rescued from the flood waters I couldn't help but think of the Mercy Heart logo: A heart-shaped life preserver.

Something Amazing Has Happened

We are just 7 days away from the North Texas Giving Day, and something amazing has happened!

Well, some very generous people and business owners came together and said that they believe in this mission so much that they were...

Would You Help 28 Million People?

Aug 31, 2017
 

28 Million

That's approximately the number of family members who have a loved one in prison or under some kind of criminal justice supervision. That's enough people to fill AT&T Stadium (home of the Dallas Cowboys) to capacity at least 280 times.

These families experience shame, isolation, and all kinds of social issues because of the crisis of incarceration. And while many churches have a desire to help, few pastors know where to begin. (Read about how much these pastors care.)

Would You Help Us Bless 100 Churches?

Aug 24, 2017
 

 

What are we doing?

We're partnering once again with the North Texas Giving Day in order to raise at least $59,000, which we'll use to bless 100 churches with a FREE year of Mercy Heart. 

Why are we doing it?

Right now we have a list of over 3,000+ pastors and church leaders who have expressed interest in starting their own Mercy Heart community for ex-offenders and their families. However, cost is a major factor for starting any new ministry. Therefore, we want to bless...
