As a worship leader for many years, she has been an integral part of Passion Conferences from its inception in 1997. She's seen first hand music sweep people into the presence of God in a powerful way. A pastor’s kid, who was born in Fort Worth and raised in Oklahoma, she grew up singing in church. She met her husband, Nathan, in 1993 at the Christian Artists Seminar in Estes Park, Co. They recorded an independent record with fellow worship leader Charlie Hall under the name Sons & Daughters that led to an invitation from Louie Giglio to participate in the first Passion conference in Austin.
For More contact with Christy:
I played this album on my way to and from work... just me, the cd and traffic. I had never heard of Christy Nockels before, so I was REALLY listening, ya know? I want to tell you first off what I didn't like about the Album:
1) It's a live recording. I HATE live recordings. Why do I want to hear other people clapping? It is very distracting. Are the people clapping for Jesus or for the artist? If I'm trying to worship while listening to this music-- applause distracts my focus from God to artist.
Okay.... glad I could get that off my chest right away. Now, onto the GOOD stuff about this album. It's filled with well-written lyrics glorifying God and reminding the worshiper that freedom is found in Christ and the worshiper can always lean on Jesus because no one can compare. If the listener is a believer, then these songs just firm up the faith that he/she has already... it's a reminder that we can lean on and trust in God. If the listener is not a believer.. it tells the listener that there is HOPE in Jesus Christ, He can be trusted and He will be there for you.
I'm not sure what genre (besides Christian Contemporary) this cd is considered to be... I felt a little rock, a little contemporary, and a little country. A good mix and a very enjoyable Album. It's a simple, beautifully done album that will lift your spirits and glorify God.
