About New Mercies Christian Church
Pastor Curney was licensed to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ in October 1987. Pastor Curney began his ministry as Youth Pastor. Pastor Curney was thoroughly equipped to accept God’s present calling as Senior Pastor of New Mercies. Pastor Curney recently graduated from Luther Rice University of Lithonia, GA; he received a Master’s of Divinity Degree in Theology.
During the year of 2000 God began to speak to Pastor Jesse Curney, III; “I have a new thing for you.” After hearing the voice of God, Pastor Curney began to pray concerning the revelation God had given him. In the latter part of 2001, during Pastor Curney’s prayer time, God’s voice became clearer. During this time of prayer, Pastor Curney asked the question, “God what do you want your new temple of dwelling to be named?” God spoke and reminded him that everyday you arise, “I provide you with new mercies”. From that point forward, Pastor Curney began to call that which was about to be birthed out of him, “New Mercies”.
With only three weeks of preparation for God’s new ordinance New Mercies Christian Church’s inaugural service took place May 5, 2002, with over 1,000 well wishers in attendance. At the past location on Rockbridge Road in Lilburn within only three months, New Mercies has multiplied from 35 founding families to more than 2,000 members; this made New Mercies one of the fastest growing churches in Lilburn, GA, Gwinnett County.
In order to bring the Vision to pass, New Mercies has over 34 ministries to meet the needs of the people. God has convinced us that He is no respecter of person and that He is truly sovereign. We recognize that everything we do must give glory to God and everything we have belongs to Him.
