Nancy Speaks in Georgia, Arizona, New Mexico and Oklahoma

For Mercy Ministries Founder, Nancy Alcorn, the past few weeks have been filled with much traveling, speaking, and sharing the heart and vision of Mercy Ministries all around the world.

Atlanta, Georgia

Nancy was recently invited to speak at Christian City Church (C3 Church) in Atlanta, Georgia. Pastor Jill Sweetman asked Nancy to be the keynote speaker at their annual women’s conference. The conference theme this year was ‘Imagine,’ and Nancy encouraged the women that lasting freedom is possible and there is nothing that is impossible with God. Nancy shared specific examples about how God has provided in miraculous ways for Mercy Ministries over the years. The women were encouraged to “imagine” all that God can do in their own lives through unwavering faith in Him.

Mercy resident from 2007

Nancy was recently invited to Tulsa, Oklahoma on Saturday, April 18th to speak at the Sunday morning services at Guts Church with Pastors Bill and Sandy Scheer. Nancy also spoke to their staff on Monday morning and made herself available for a time of Q&A. She then spoke at their Guts Girls’ event on Monday evening – which was a night designed specifically for Nancy to be able to talk very openly about some of the major issues facing women in today’s society. At the end of the service, over 100 women came forward to make commit their lives to Christ. There is no greater joy than having the opportunity to witness individuals who have carried pain, shame, guilt and condemnation for years choose freedom in an instant.

Another highlight of this trip for Nancy was reconnecting with several former Mercy residents who came to hear her speak. This is something Nancy always looks forward to wherever she goes.
