Jesse Duplantis Ministries Partners with Mercy Ministries

Cathy Duplantis and Nancy AlcornJesse Duplantis and his wife Reverend Cathy Duplantis have been faithful monthly supporters of Mercy Ministries for numerous years personally, through their church, and through Jesse Duplantis Ministries. As the founder and co-founders of Jesse Duplantis Ministries, Jesse and Cathy, have spent over 36 years preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world. Together, they pastor Covenant Church in Destrehan, Louisiana and oversee the International Headquarters for JDM. However, much of their time is spent apart as they frequently speak at church meetings and conferences amidst hosting television broadcasts, writing books, and editing their monthly magazine. Jesse and Cathy host many of their own conferences and most recently, they invited Nancy Alcorn to be their keynote speaker at their Glorious Women Conference in 2008. Jesse and Cathy maintain a very busy schedule and are loved by many, yet they still manage to devote time to Mercy Ministries’ residents.

Over the years, our residents have thoroughly enjoyed the teachings of Jesse and Cathy Duplantis. The girls absolutely love how Jesse makes them laugh as he ties his personal, and rather entertaining, life lessons to biblical truths. As much as our residents look forward to hearing Jesse speak, they also adore Cathy and consider her a favorite guest speaker. Specifically, Cathy has spent personal time in our homes encouraging the girls that transformation through God’s Word is what brings lasting change. Cathy is an awesome teacher of the Word, who is dedicated to living by faith and inspiring others to do the same.

Cathy Duplantis, Nancy Alcorn and crewOur residents and staff have been consistently overwhelmed by the generosity of Jesse and Cathy as they not only support the ministry financially, but they also donate a wealth of teaching materials, books, CD’s, T-shirts, etc.

We are so amazed at how the Lord continues to build relationships according to His plan. As a ministry, we are grateful for the many years of friendship and support that Jesse and Cathy have allowed. Thank you, Jesse and Cathy, for pouring the love of God into Mercy Ministries and throughout the world!
