Mercy Drive Ministries

This is Mercy Drive Ministries — a non-profit organization that focuses on the practical needs of the Mercy Drive Community — education, life skills, and spiritual guidance.

Mercy Drive Ministries, Inc.(MDM) was formed to serve as the community outreach arm of Heart of Mercy Community Church, serving the Mercy Drive Community of Orlando, Florida. While many people in the greater Orlando area see Mercy Drive as "Murder Drive" and Pine Hills as "Crime Hills," Mercy Dive Ministries, Inc. dares to envision a community of healthy, whole, productive and responsible citizens. We believe our vision will become reality when the Church extends its hand to reach those individuals who have become marginalized by society. Lasting change comes from within a person's heart, as hope and new life are restored. In turn, the transformation of the community is a natural result of changed hearts and a new outlook on life.

Mission: Our mission at MDM is to effect a positive long term change in our community by addressing social issues including cultural bondage, racial barriers, and complacency.

The Importance of People Who Make It Out

Those who make it out of the community can be a light of hope - a beacon. But it is also within their ability to be more than that if they find it within their calling…

We Are Mercy Drive - This is Our Community

This is our Jerusalem. We’re a part of Orlando just as much as any other community. While the problems our neighbors face are different than those in more affluent neighborhoods, we still dream, hope, smile, and struggle like everyone else. We invite you to learn more about us.

This is The Mercy Drive Movement

We need perspective change, we need engagement to uplift our community, we need a fair chance, we need a voice to explain how things are, we need Movement.

If we want to change the world, start with our own backyard. Start with our communities. We are running a handful of programs to create more opportunities for the people who live here. But we need more hands, we need more minds, we need more servant leadership.

We are right here in the corridor. Meet with us. Learn about our culture. Learn about the uphill battle communities like ours face. Help us create opportunities for brighter futures.

What does “Black Lives Matter” mean?

If you really want to know, send us a direct message to schedule a 30 minute drive-through tour. I will personally give you a tour of our community. I invite you to have a dialogue with me to uncover the truth behind what this statement means to us. It’s through your perspective and through your actions that we believe the change begins to happen.

Our Vision - Education in Mercy Drive

A strong education is key to leading a self-sustaining life. However, many kids on Mercy Drive lack access to high-quality education programs. This leaves them falling behind in school and eventually being unable to face the challenges that life throws at them.

So we started an after school program that helped them not only prepare for elementary school, but to exceed all expectations. It's these resources that make lasting change in our community. And we're just getting started.

Our Approach to Lasting Change - Mercy Drive Ministries

It's about giving a hand up, not a hand out. We believe that in order to make lasting change in our community, we need to help people help themselves. This becomes possible when we provide the resources and opportunities for sustainability — education, life skills, and spiritual guidance.

At Mercy Drive Ministries, each one of our programs focuses on these pillars. But we need your help.

Martin Luther King, Jr., "What Is Your Life's Blueprint?"

We all know what Martin Luther King Jr. stood for, but how many of us actually use this day to really explore what he taught? Much of his wisdom is digitally preserved, just a Google search away. So let’s honor him in a deeper way — through shared discussion.

Comment with your favorite quote, video, or a bit of wisdom from MLK and tell us how you apply it to your life today. Tag 3 friends and invite them to do the same.

This video, in particular, is one of our favorites. It reminds us that we always have the power, and the responsibility, to be excellent every single day.

Mercy Drive in 2020

As downtown Orlando continues to expand, the current residents continue to get relocated. That means hundreds of families will pour into The Mercy Drive Corridor. Thankfully, we're finally gaining the resources and capacity to make a difference as people come into our community.

Change is inevitable. We're here to make sure the change that happens is always positive and in service to the needs that our people face.

Help make positive impact now — visit us at www.mercydriveministries.com

Mercy Drive Ministries

When they ask us about Mercy Drive, we don't tell them who we are. We tell them why we do it. It's about the people, and the possibility of changing their lives. Be it ten or ten thousand, our calling is to make the difference.

The task isn't always easy, but it's always possible. Hearts forever strong, it's our faith that fills us with hope and our journeys that make us unique. Dignity and empathy go a long way. In fact, we know this first hand. We're not a charity that's helping Mercy Drive.

We are Mercy Drive.

If you're in the community and are looking for something fun to do Friday night, join us for Kids Movie Night! We will also have snacks available for purchase! See you there and bring a friend! 😎

God has been doing some amazing things in the ministry so far this summer...as the overall vision tarries, we are encouraged by what has already happened. We know that God does everything in His timing, and we trust Him completely to come through. He's on time all the time!

Our kids are finishing STRONG this year! Almost all of them brought their grades up and made Honor Roll. Many of them have also grown spiritually! We can't be more proud of our Achievers! There are only 2 more days until we break for summer and officially start to MISS them! 😭

This morning, we received a text message with this photo...Ki'won is a first grader and has one of the brightest personalities at the Achiever's Club. His desire to do well both in and out of school has grown exponentially this year. Here he is seen with 2nd grade math work, something he was proud of and wanted us to see, and PROUD we are! Great job Ki'won! 😎

We are at the Sight Word Spelling Bee supporting our Kindergarten Geniuses 🤓, Jeremiah and Dequan!!!!! Praying for the win but, either way, we are SO proud of them! 🙌🏾

One of the things we'll miss is seeing our kids open up and just enjoy themselves! Laughter is GOOD for the soul!

We're so excited about what God is doing in our Achiever's lives! They're so excited about learning and growing...and it's showing! These are our Kindergarten and First Graders who made Honor Roll 😎

Our 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders split up into teams to compete in a critical thinking game called Brain Teasers. Team 'God First' came out on top...and they discovered the JOY in learning!

Rihanna is our third recipient for Ericka Dunlap's Student Achievement Award! Yay for straight A's!!!!!! 🤓📖

Congratulations to the winners of Ms. Ericka Dunlap's Student Achievement Award. Anyiah, Loadz, and Rihanna (not pictured) were awarded $100 for receiving ALL A's! Our other Achievers were also placed on the Honor Roll. We're seeing noted improvement in reading, sight words, math, and behavior! We're excited to continue supporting our students as we teach biblical and cultural principles. God us on the move in each of their lives! 🙌🏾🤓

Some tough decisions were made this afternoon on the fate of a young lizard... Welcome back, kids. Welcome back.

Spring Break officially starts today! We're gonna miss all those smiley faces this week!
