The great missionary to South America – Jim Elliot once said, “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot loose.” That quote is certainly inspiring but what exactly does this look like for the average follower of Christ? Well for 30 people that looked like uprooting their lives from Raliegh/Durham, NC to plant a church in Greensboro, NC.
The story of Mercy Hill Church began about 2 and a half years ago at the Summit Church in Raleigh, NC. The Summit Church led by pastor J.D. Greear has a vision to plant 1,000 churches across the world in the next 40 years. Mercy Hill was birthed out of that vision when pastor Andrew Hopper felt a call to plant a new church of the Summit Church to Greensboro, NC.
After recruiting a leadership team of two other pastors, as well as 30 others from the Summit – these 30 moved their lives to Greensboro in May of 2012. Four months later, on September 9th, 2012, Mercy Hill Church launched their first public service. Now a year later we are getting ready to celebrate all the exciting things God has done in the life of our church. We invite you to join us this Sunday – September 8th at either 4:00p.m. or 6:00 p.m. at Bur Mill Park in Greensboro.
