Located on a busy corner west of downtown Greenville, the non-denominational Triune Mercy Center is uniquely situated to minister to the displaced – primarily through welcome into a worshiping community. Everything we do flows out of our gospel witness and encourages Greenville’s homeless and affluent to come together – in worship, Bible study, art, improvisational theater, music, gardening, volunteerism and various forms of assistance.
With the support of our compassion partners, Triune serves four hot meals a week. We have a Wednesday morning food pantry, and weekend laundry service. More importantly, we provide transformational support for those needing drug rehabilitation, employment, mental health counseling, medical treatment, legal aid and housing.

Message from Our Pastor
When people visit Triune for the first time and see the diversity in race, income, age and mental capability, they inevitably tell us, “This is what the kingdom of God must look like.” Add in some musical diversity – from classical to gospel to rock to old church hymns, and we hope there’s something for everyone. We invite you to come and see for yourself.
Back Yard Missions
Back Yard Mission Days are intended to give a mission encounter right in your own back yard.
Back Yard Mission Days are offered by reservation on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. On Wednesday or Saturday, we introduce you to our facility and our work, have conversations with those experiencing homelessness, and engage in reflection. If you would like to eat lunch with us on Saturday, you may. A Sunday Mission Day begins with 11 a.m. worship, followed by lunch and conversations with our homeless parishioners, then the tour and reflection.
In return, we request a $15-per-person offering to help finance the ministries of Triune Mercy Center. We ask that participants be 9th grade to adult.
