Pastor Lindell Cooley Shares a Life-Changing Message in Nashville!

2Mercy Nashville residents and staff were honored to host Lindell Cooley, Pastor of Grace Church in Nashville, Tennessee, as their special guest teacher and worship leader last Tuesday morning. Nancy Alcorn, Founder and President of Mercy Ministries, first met Pastor Cooley in the early 90’s when he led worship at Christ Church in Nashville. Later, when he became the worship leader for Brownsville Assembly of God in Pensacola, Florida, history was made when the church experienced a powerful revival in which many people encountered a mighty move of God in their lives. This revival lasted five consecutive years!

In 2004, Pastor Cooley moved back to Nashville to plant Grace Church. An extremely talented songwriter and musician, he serves as President of Music Missions International (MMI), a nonprofit ministry dedicated to spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ through music, ministry, missions and education. Pastor Cooley is known across the country and beyond for his worship leading and for a number of his dynamic recordings.

Pastor Cooley delivered a powerful message that blew everyone away! The message was dynamic and life-changing, yet practical and easy-to-apply. He shared about the power of blessing and explained how vital it is that we speak life and blessing verses death. He shared several examples of blessing and cursing from the Bible. Pastor Cooley challenged everyone to get with someone who is a leader in their life and ask them to verbally bless them. Several of our pregnant residents were empowered to use this opportunity and speak blessing over their babies and dedicate their children’s lives to God! We are excited that many of our residents and staff experienced exciting breakthrough in their Christian walk and were deeply impacted by this awesome time of ministry!

Here is what a few of the girls had to say about Pastor Cooley’s life-changing message:

Cara said, “This was AMAZING! I have learned that my words are so powerful! Now I want to speak blessings over myself, and over other people’s lives.”

Beth said, “Pastor Cooley’s message was life-changing! His message on speaking blessings totally changed my thought life and the words I speak!”

Here is what Nancy Alcorn had to say about this: “I rarely say this, but I absolutely think this is one message that every single person in the whole entire Body of Christ globally needs to listen to. Thanks to the power of the internet, this can be possible for anyone who reads this. Please trust me on this one. You are not only going to want to apply this to your life, but you will want to share with others so they can do the same.”

A huge thanks to Pastor Cooley for bringing this life-breathing and life-giving word to our residents and staff! If you want to check out more about Pastor Lindell Cooley and what he is doing through his church, Grace Church of Nashville, check out their website at
