An Angel of Mercy

Nancy Alcorn, founder of Mercy Ministries, leads a one-woman crusade to help abused, addicted and pregnant girls find hope.

Nancy Alcorn slips into the back of the room and takes a seat. She’s in a large common room at Mercy Ministries, one of several Christian homes for troubled girls, the first of which Alcorn, a charismatic, started nearly 30 years ago. On a pristine, unseasonably warm November morning in Tennessee, five girls are preparing to graduate from Mercy’s Nashville home. These girls have lived here for an average of five months due to a myriad of addictions and problems, from eating disorders and substance abuse to depression.

A worship leader at North Point Community Church outside Atlanta, Seth Condrey’s second album is an interesting collection of praise and worship tunes and modern rock-infused pop ballads. Condrey, who attended college in South America and won a Gospel Music Association Dove Award for his 2007 Spanish-language album De corazon a corazon, is pretty impressive singing in his native tongue, too.
