Nancy Alcorn Speaks at Girl’s Getaway Weekend!

Last Friday, Mercy Ministries Founder and President, Nancy Alcorn, had the privilege of speaking at a Girl’s Getaway in the Nashville area for the Tennessee District Assemblies of God women’s ministry leaders. Nancy was joined by Debbie Lindell, co-pastor with her husband John, of James River Assembly in Springfield, Missouri, and Shelayne McDaniel, Tennessee Assemblies of God Ladies Director. The theme for the weekend was Dare to Dream and guests were challenged to dream big - God-sized dreams. Nancy encouraged the women to put faith into action by believing God is greater than any circumstance or situation they might be facing.

Nancy also had the awesome opportunity to teach a leadership session. She educated the leaders about what to look for in the lives of people who might be dealing with life-controlling issues such as eating disorders, self-harm and unplanned pregnancies. She also provided them with resources to help people struggling with these issues in their churches and communities. Nancy and Debbie were also asked to lead a time of Q & A. Worship leader, Tracee Davidson of The Bridge Church in Bristol, TN shared her heart through worship and song. This getaway weekend was a powerful time of ministry, connection, and new relationships!

A big thanks to Shelayne McDaniel for giving out special collection jars to the women’s ministry leaders as they left. Shelayne challenged guests to take the containers back to their women’s groups share the vision of Mercy, and encourage them to fill the jars with donations. The jars will be returned when they all gather in July at their annual women’s conference, where Nancy will be a keynote speaker.
