Jaime Jamgochian Shares More Than Music at Mercy Ministries

Jaime Jamgochian Shares More Than Music at Mercy Ministries
Worship-pop artist and host of Modest is Hottest conferences, Jaime Jamgochian, showed her love and support for Mercy Ministries with a special private concert at the Nashville home. Jaime first met Nancy Alcorn, the Founder and President of Mercy Ministries, on the "Girls of Grace" tour in 2006. Jaime says of Nancy, "I was taken by her passion to see girls walk in the divine destiny and freedom Jesus has for each of us."

Having come to Christ during her college years, Jaime admits to making her share of mistakes early on and is equipped to talk with girls about modesty and purity. She challenged the Mercy girls to live in a way that reveals security in who God says we are which is reflected in all areas of our lives.

Jaime writes music about escaping life's noise and passionately seeking God in the midst of distraction. Our residents engaged in Jaime's passion for worship and were encouraged by the insightful lyrics from her new album, "Above the Noise." She sang about how loving God is not a complicated ritualistic thing, but it's about receiving His unconditional love.

Jaime has a sincerity that she pours into her lyrics that touched the hearts of the Mercy girls. Here is what a few of the girls had to say about their visit with Jaime:

"I realized that my conduct in dating relationships and the way I dress is a reflection of Christ in me." - Megan

"I don't have to mimic what I'm seeing on TV. I can be trendy and cute and not reveal everything. Jaime helped me think about how I have to believe God for who He says I am and that my identity is in Him alone." - Katie

"Jaime told us about how we can lift Christ up above issues and chaos in our lives. I want to dress in a way that glorifies God." - Leslie

In addition to her special private concert with the Nashville residents, Jaime has been to Mercy several times to lead worship for the girls. Check out this video of Jaime's most recent time at Mercy, click.
