Jennifer Fouse Sheorn is the Pastor and Director of Trinue Mercy Center, a church and ministry in the Greenville area that provides a radical welcome.
"Triune Mercy Center is a non-denominational church in Greenville, SC that ministers alongside those in need. [Their] mission is to share Christ’s love by meeting physical needs and providing life-changing opportunities for the disadvantaged" (Triune's website).
When a person is living on the streets, survival mode is what "drives the brain." Often, the first thing on that person's mind is not church attendance, or at the very least, it can be hard to focus on one's spiritual health when their physical health is suffering. At Triune Mercy Center, things like food, mental health counseling, medical and legal aid, and other resources are offered right alongside the opportunity to worship in a traditional church setting. Triune hopes that as hurting people receive care for their physical needs, they will also be willing to allow their spiritual condition to be changed by Jesus' love.
On this episode, Jennifer and Ryan's conversation ranges from Triune's church philosophy to dialogue on the biggest issues facing the homeless community in the Upstate.
Interacting with someone who is currently experiencing homelessness can feel awkard and messy. But, God doesn't call us to stay in the comfortable.
