pastor matt & pastor carrie

lead pastors

Pastors Matt & Carrie Erikson are the lead pastors of Mercy City Church in Nebraska. They have a heart for Lincoln and to see its people connect to the heart of God and to the house of God. They believe that this will be done by sharing the message of Jesus Christ in a fresh and relevant way. We believe that a building doesn’t make a church but instead people make the church.
Matt & Carrie have four amazing children; Cooper, Elijah, Emery, and Lilah Jane. As a family, they love spending time being active, mostly baseball/softball and bike rides. Ultimately they just love their city and all things Husker related. They’re excited to see what God will continue to do.
