For the past year, churches in north Florida have operated Mercy Network of Clay County, a ministry that provides assistance to many homeless families with children. Mercy Network group homes have been open for more than two months to assist these families with temporary accommodations, and the ministry is gathering support to open three additional homes. Orange Cove Church is a member of Mercy Network, and Pastor André Van Heerden was elected as president.
Jacksonville’s First Coast News recently produced a six-minute feature story about the ministry. Watch the video below, or use this link to watch on First Coast News’ web page.
