Power-Packed Weekend – Nancy speaks in Oklahoma!

For Mercy Ministries Founder and President, Nancy Alcorn, this past weekend was filled with many exciting opportunities to speak and share the heart and vision of Mercy throughout the Tulsa and Oklahoma City area.

Nancy considers it a great privilege to have been invited by the Oasis Radio Network out of Tulsa to come by their studio Friday and share her story on their daily radio program. Roadshow host, David Warren, was excited to give Nancy a platform to share how God is using Mercy Ministries to help transform the lives of young women all around the world and equip them for a great future. One St. Louis graduate, Lindsay , also joined Nancy in the studio in order to share her amazing journey from depression and suicidal thoughts to complete freedom in Christ! We hope that as this radio interview airs on many stations around the country, people will be moved to join with us through their prayers and support to see more lives transformed.

Then on Friday evening, Nancy visited Victory Christian Center in Tulsa, where she was invited to speak at the Shine Women’s Conference hosted by Pastor Sharon Daugherty. This was a powerful time as over 900 women from all ages came together to seek God and focus their hearts towards Him. Many people were touched as Nancy shared a message about the power of the Cross of Christ. She challenged everyone to examine the impact of their choices by asking themselves, “Who is on the other side of your obedience?” As Nancy shared what Christ did in order for us to be forgiven, many people were moved to let go of their past and demonstrate forgiveness in their own lives.

Nancy was joined by other keynote speakers including Sharon Daugherty, Senior Pastor at Victory Christian Center, Sarah Wehrli, Founder of Inspire International, and Ruthie Sanders, Administrative Pastor at Victory Christian Center.

On Saturday, Nancy traveled to Oklahoma City for a very special private fundraiser at the home of Bill and Cindy Stewart. The Stewarts have been faithful supporters of Mercy Ministries for many years and adopted their son, Gabe, through our adoption program. We are so thankful that this generous couple opened their home to host this event. Hearts were touched as Nancy shared the vision of Mercy and two graduates shared their powerful testimonies of freedom. With the goal to expand our reach across the nation, Mercy Ministries wants to raise awareness in the Oklahoma area so more people can join us in seeing lives changed!
