"The Life Church" Pastors John and Leslie Siebeling Come to Mercy Ministries

Pastors John and Leslie Siebeling
Residents and staff at the Nashville home had the incredible privilege of hearing from Pastors John and Leslie Siebeling yesterday. Pastors John and Leslie started The Life Church in Memphis, TN in 1996 and in the past five years, over 24,000 people have come to Christ through their weekend services.

During the morning class time, Pastor John spoke about using the Lord’s Prayer in Matthew 6:9-13 as a model for how to move forward in our lives, emphasizing the principles of honor, renewal, release, forgiveness and pursuit. He shared that honor flows from the heart and can open the door to reward, advancement, promotion and favor in one’s life.

In the afternoon, Pastors John and Leslie spoke to the staff in a special leadership session about 7 different ways we can lead like Jesus. Using examples from the Gospel of Luke, he showed how Jesus called people to surrender, encouraged change and touched those that no one else would. It was a great time of encouragement and unity for the entire residential and corporate staff.

Pastors John and Leslie are longtime friends of Mercy Ministries Founder and President, Nancy Alcorn and you can read what she wrote about their visit on her blog at nancyalcorn.blogspot.com.
