About Christy Nockels

Christy Nockels was born in Fort Worth, Texas and grew up in Oklahoma as the daughter of a pastor and a piano teacher, which infused her heart early with a love for both music and God's word.


Christy met her husband Nathan in 1993 at the Christian Artists Seminar in Estes Park, Colorado. They married in 1995 and the two began serving as worship leaders in their local church in Oklahoma City, while Nathan finished college at Oklahoma Baptist University. It was during these early years that they began writing songs together in their tiny, one bedroom apartment. In 1996, the two made an album entitled “Holy Roar” under the name “Sons & Daughters” with fellow worship leader and friend, Charlie Hall. Eventually they signed a recording contract as “Watermark” and moved to Nashville, TN in 1998.


Together as Watermark, Christy Nockels and Nathan recorded five albums with Rocketown Records. They composed a journey full of songs, 7 of which were #1 radio singles. They have been nominated for numerous Dove Awards, including Christy's nominations for Female Vocalist of the Year, and their album A Grateful People was up for both Inspirational Album of the Year and Praise & Worship Album of the Year.

Christy’s heart is to encourage young women through worship and teaching, and also to encourage women of all ages to pursue mentorship relationships.  Drawing from her own life experiences, through word and song, is what she loves to do most. With a heart to see young women open up their lives fully to God, Christy desires to leave a legacy and to proclaim the name of Jesus over this generation.

Christy makes her home in Franklin, Tennessee with her husband Nathan and their 3 children. * * *
