A Quick Snapshot

Founded in 2004 with a dozen twenty-somethings from Illinois, our church family has grown to include hundreds of people.

Jeff and Le Que Heidkamp, Mercy’s Co-Lead Pastors, had experienced life-changing acceptance, healing, love and kindness from God and wanted to find ways to share that experience with others. They envisioned a faith community that was authentic, intellectually honest, spiritually vibrant, engaged in justice and multicultural. Jeff and Le Que set out with some friends from their sending church, the Vineyard Church in Urbana, IL.

Since 2004, we’ve gone from meeting in a living room to having two services in our own building near the heart of the Arts District in Northeast Minneapolis.
