Today’s podcast interview is with the amazingly fun and talented Angela Mercer! We will be discussing the great need for belonging that women have, and the importance of building community around us. Angela currently lives in Komoka, a cute, little town outside of London, Ontario where her and her husband serve as campus pastors at Gateway Church. They have been serving side by side in ministry together for almost 20 years. Angela just really loves PEOPLE. Her heart is for people to really grasp how loved they are by a God who is not distant or angry but is close and in love with His children. She loves coffee, a good DIY project and spending time with her fun loving teenagers Isaac and Michaela.
