Mercy Ministries Hits The TV Airwaves In Support of Coach Jeff Fisher!!!

Nancy Alcorn and Jeff Fisher
Coach Jeff Fisher is a great personal friend of Mercy Founder and President, Nancy Alcorn, who is an avid sports fan and Titans supporter. Nancy was honored to be interviewed by Nashville’s NBC affiliate,WSMV, about Coach Fisher’s decision to end his run with the Tennessee Titans football franchise. She said of his decision, “He deserves a rest. He works harder than just about anybody I know.”

Mercy Girls at the Softball Game
Coach Fisher and his family are longtime supporters of Mercy, personally donating to Mercy each time the Titans brought home a victory. Another highlight every year is the annual “Jeff Fisher & Friends” Charity Softball Game. For the past 10 years, this event has raised funds for Mercy Ministries as well as several other local charities and the girls love attending the game and cheering for their favorite players.

Cheering for the Tennessee Titans football team has always been a highlight for Mercy Ministries residents and staff. In fact, the break room at Mercy Ministries’ corporate office is dedicated to the Titans years of success under Head Coach Jeff Fisher and is filled with photos and memorabilia. Check out these photos of the break room and some of our favorite times with Coach Fisher:

We are so grateful to Juli Fisher, Coach Jeff Fisher and their entire family for their dedication and support of Mercy Ministries and the Nashville community. We are excited for this new chapter in his life and look forward to all God has in store for this amazing coach and friend!  To see what Nancy had to say to Nashville's News Channel 4, CLICK HERE.  (*The story is running on a rotation so if you don't see it the first time, please try again!)
