A Powerful Time Of Worship With Higher Ground

The Nashville residents enjoyed a powerful time of ministry during a special private concert with Higher Ground yesterday. This dynamic gospel trio not only makes amazing music, but touches hearts in a deep and personal way.

Eddie Combs, Wayne Hilliard, and Rodney Jordan (pictured above left to right) had a huge impact on the girls and staff through their anointed singing and teaching. They sang many popular songs, such as “I Am Free,” “Run Into Me,” and “You Are Good,” all of which testified to the freedom and transformation that happens in the lives of the hurting young women who come to Mercy. Here’s what some of the residents had to say about Higher Ground:

WOW! This was awesome! I could feel God’s presence through the whole house! Their songs are so powerful! - Nikki

This was awesome! It blessed me so much when they shared Eph 1:4, that even before He made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in His eyes. - Jessica

So much impacted me from this message. Hearing them speak over some of the girls was amazing. I was also encouraged when they said, “You may have done what they say you did, but you’re not who they say you are.” I have been called so many things, but I’m not that person anymore. I know God will heal my life. - Tori

These amazing men of God really connected with the girls through their words of encouragement and joyful songs of praise! Check out these photos from this inspiring time of worship:
