Growing up, Nancy was convinced she had nothing to offer anyone. Having been traumatized in her mothers’ womb, she grew up with many issues. Having come to the Lord in 1970, she has gone through years of healing and since 1986 began to minister when she came alongside Jim Sky Ministries at a storefront church on 9th and Robert Street in St. Paul, MN.
In 1996 she and her husband, Wally formed their own ministry; Staff and Bowls Ministries (named so for the wheat grains (from staves of wheat), ground to flour to be made into bread and broken, that others may eat)
Nancy has always had a love for the Native American people. She and her husband, Wally, had close First Nations friends/neighbors growing up. She has a brother who is half Native American. Nancy also is the oldest of five girls. Nancy grew up in a dysfunctional/alcoholism family and knows the struggles of becoming whole in Christ.
Wally and Nancy have traveled many times with Jim Sky to western regions of the US leading worship and ministering alongside the Sky's. Nancy also is the oldest of five girls. In 1996 she and Wally began visiting Native American reservations in western Wisconsin, and northern MN. Currently, they travel regularly to the Mole Lake/Pottawatomie Reservations, Lac Courte Oreilles reservations, and to the Red Lake and Leech Lake Reservations in particular, helping with what they can to encourage and help grow the Body of Christ there with teaching and worship gatherings. Wally plays guitar and Nancy [plays Native American flutes and guitar and electric autoharp. Nancy is currently facilitating Elijah House Schools and Bible Studies at the reservations as the Lord leads
