Nancy Alcorn Featured in Popular Cutting-Edge Magazine, Risen!

We are excited to announce that Founder and President of Mercy Ministries, Nancy Alcorn, is highlighted in the current issue of first-class magazine, Risen! Risen is a unique, faith-based publication that interviews a wide range of people, such as leaders in ministry, unsung heroes and stars from music, film, TV and sports. Nancy is honored to be included in this prestigious group.

Written from a Christian, Biblical perspective, Risen mixes intelligent writing with amazing photography for a truly one-of-a-kind publication. Here is a glimpse of what Nancy had to say about her time working for the state of Tennessee at a correctional facility for juvenile delinquent girls, and why she felt led to start Mercy Ministries:

No matter what kind of programs the government offers, no matter how many tax dollars it spends, and no matter how many experts it hires, the government cannot forgive their sin – not even one. These girls needed transformation, not modification.

Click here to see the magazine online and read the full interview as Nancy shares the story behind the calling on her life. You will also find some of the amazing stories of young women who have found freedom and had their lives completely transformed by the love of Christ. You especially won’t want to miss the incredible sidebar story of sex-trafficking survivor and Mercy graduate, Priscilla, also included in the article!
