Rocknations Rocks the UK!!

This past weekend, Nancy Alcorn joined over 1,000 young people from all over Europe, including the Mercy UK girls, as a keynote speaker at Rocknations Youth Conference in Bradford, England. Founded and hosted by Steve Gambill and Abundant Life Church, Rocknations is a unique conference for young people across the European nations that is dedicated to empowering this generation to change their culture for Christ.

Nancy Alcorn was thrilled to be joined by speakers, Phil Dooley, Pastor of Hillsong Cape Town in South Africa and Steve Gambill, who is passionate about helping young people reach their full potential. The gathering also featured bands like RPM, the Rocknations Worship Band, plus Four Kornerz and The Gentlemen.

The youth were challenged to experience how awesome God is and remember that to forget God, is to forget who they are and why they are here on the earth. Before and after the general sessions, the youth had a blast trying to choose between all the special activities at Rocknations like bungee trampolines, a dance workshop, wall climbing, battle of the bands, skate city and a surf simulator!

Here is what Nancy Alcorn had to say about this incredible event:

“It was so exciting to be a part of Rocknations 9th annual conference. After a great message from Steve Gambill, 212 young people came forward and committed their lives to Christ. The hearts and lives of the youth here were changed by the love and power of Christ - I love my job!! It has been an amazing weekend!”

Rocknations is evidence of the powerful work God is doing in Europe. Mercy Ministries is already making plans and looking forward to participating at next year’s conference!
