Dr. Dwayne Mercer

Dr. Dwayne Mercer is a native of Georgia. He and his wife, Pam, have three adult children and six adorable grandchildren. They have served at CrossLife Church since 1993, as it has grown from 650 to 5,000 members and over 4,000 new believers have been baptized during that time.

While attending Toccoa Falls College, Southwestern, and Mid-America Seminaries, Dr. Mercer learned his love for God’s Word. His passion is to reach people for Christ and see them grow in their walk with God.

“I’m honored to lead CrossLife Church alongside my wife, Pam. We are grateful to be with such wonderful people and look forward to our promising future.”
