Sermons from Mecca New Life Wesleyan's pastor, Donna Hardesty, are available for listening online.

Donna's call to ministry came after years of volunteer work in youth and children's ministry. As newlyweds, she and her husband served in a Congregational Church, then attended a Methodist Church before settling into the independent Christian church where she grew up.

In 2001, she and and her family joined the Mecca New Life family. She accepted a staff position at Mecca New Life in 2004, became Assistant Pastor in 2006, and began serving as pastor (the only paid pastoral staff presently at Mecca New Life) in 2008.

She is a 2008 graduate of Indiana Wesleyan University's Master of Ministry Leadership program, and has completed graduate work at Indiana State University in Educational Psychology and English Education. She also received a bachelor of arts degree in 1981 from St. Mary-of-the-Woods College, where she majored in English and Journalism. She is an ordained minister in the Wesleyan Church and licensed by the State of Indiana to teach both English and Journalism.

She grew up just a few miles from Mecca New Life - a Parke County native - and lives in her grandparents' former home with her husband, her two youngest sons, three cats and two dogs. Her two oldest sons and daughters-in-law live close by.
