Jaime Jamgochian Visits the California Home!

Worship artist and host of the “Modest is Hottest” conferences, Jaime Jamgochian, has visited our Nashville home several times. Recently, Jaime was in Rocklin, CA leading worship with our good friends and ministry partners, Sunset Christian Church. Sunset Christian Church is also the home church of the residents in our California home. Jaime stopped by Mercy to have lunch with the girls and treat them to a special time of worship. In 2006, Jaime first met Nancy Alcorn, the Founder and President of Mercy Ministries, on the "Girls of Grace" tour. 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."

Jaime came to know Christ during her college years and admits to making her share of mistakes. Because of her testimony, Jaime feels a passion 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 and how He is reflected in all areas of our lives.

Jaime’s music is 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 latest album, "Above the Noise." She sang about how loving God is not a complicated ritualistic thing, but it is about receiving His unconditional love.

Jaime’s sincerity is poured into her lyrics and has touched the hearts of the Mercy girls. Here is what a few of the girls had to say about Jaime’s visit to Mercy:

“I felt extremely blessed and grateful for the opportunity to hear Jaime’s testimony and worship with her. God really used the song she sang about Him seeing each one of us as beautiful and precious in His eyes, to speak to my heart and teach me about His love for me. I’m so grateful for God allowing me this opportunity for Jaime to speak hope into my life and show the love of Christ to us girls.” –Alicia

“Jaime was such an encouragement. She has such an incredible spirit and spoke so much hope and encouragement into my spirit. I really look up to her and I know that same spirit that dwells in her dwells in me.” – Dayna

“I thought it was great for Jaime to take time out of her busy schedule to come and speak some love and encouragement into our lives. It means a lot when we get to meet our supporters face to face and see their passion for us and for Mercy. She had a great story that touched us all in some way.” – Sarah

Mercy Ministries is thankful to have the love and support from such amazing people like Jaime Jamgochian. Their heart and willingness to give of themselves is part of what continues to grow this ministry and allows us to see the lives of so many girls transformed.
