“If the son sets you free, you will be free indeed!”
Village Mercy Ministries uses a Bible-centered approach to counsel, encourage, and motivate people who are trapped in their sin. We believe that “addiction” to any substance or activity is a worship disorder. It is, therefore, primarily a spiritual issue. Our goal is to help these dedicated worshipers leart to worship God rather than their own selves.
Located in Southern Johannesburg in South Africa, Village Mercy is located in an area dominated by crime, corruption, and a general “Me First” attitude that seems to evidence itself in all activity. Reminders of the state of Israel at the end of the period of the Judges at which time “everyone did that which was right in his own eyes” make this area of the world ripe for the message of the Gospel.
A secondary, but major emphasis, of the ministry of Village Mercy is equipping residents with job skills and the opportunity for remedial education. With a high rate of unemployment and a low rate of high school graduation, we seek to give residents who go through the program every opportunity to be equipped to succeed upon their graduation.
