Mercy Ministries at Catalyst 2010

Mercy Ministries had the incredible opportunity to attend the 2010 Catalyst Conference in Atlanta, GA this month. Catalyst is the largest gathering of young church leaders in the country. Mercy Ministries Church Relations Director, Eve Annunziato, had the privilege of co-hosting a luncheon for more than 120 women in ministry who attended the conference. Over 100 different churches were represented. Here is what Eve had to say about the luncheon:

“It was such an honor to speak to such a beautiful, diverse group of women in ministry. These powerful leaders are making eternal differences in their communities and I was inspired and humbled by their passion to help those who are lost and hurting.”

During the luncheon, Eve shared the vision of Mercy Ministries and the need for churches to commit their support. Mercy graduate Kim Brownie told her powerful story of freedom and transformation from sex trafficking victim to college student and mentor. Hear Kim’s testimony in this short video from the event:

Special thanks to Leading and Loving It and Cultivate Her, two ministries that encourage, support, and connect women in leadership, for co-hosting the luncheon. We are so grateful to all of the amazing women who took the time to attend the luncheon and hear more about Mercy Ministries. Churches investing their time, expertise and financial resources in a partnership with Mercy Ministries can directly save the lives of the young women we serve!
