Nancy Halfhill is the daughter of Pastor Mick and Andrea Robinson. She graduated from Cornerstone University in 2007 with a Bachelor's degree in K-12 Music Education. That same year, she also received her Bachelor's degree in Biblical Studies from Grace Christian University. Nancy has served as our Worship Leader and Children's Ministries Coordinator for eight years. In 2013, Nancy decided to take her love of songwriting to the next level by learning from Christian music industry artists and professionals at various songwriting conferences in Nashville. As a result, she has written several songs for independent artists, children's ministries, and congregational worship.
In 2014, she married Matthew Halfhill, who also participates in the music ministry by singing and playing the acoustic guitar. They were blessed with a beautiful baby girl named Aubrey in 2018 and continue to faithfully serve the Lord together.

I grew up in a few places including Colorado (where I accepted Christ at the age of 10) and California. Although I consider Shoreline, WA my hometown, where I attended Berean Bible Church as a teenager and into my 20’s. As a teen I was highly active in the youth ministry program and due to home life circumstances, came to see and value the church and youth ministry as my family.
After high school and one year at Grace Bible College (now known as Grace Christian University), I spent 3 years working and serving in the Navy. It was during this time that I first got involved in youth ministry as a leader, serving as a counselor on a middle school retreat. In the years to come I became more and more involved in youth ministry and in the summer of 1998 realized that God had gifted and called me into youth ministry. I re-enrolled in Grace Bible College that fall and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Youth Ministry in 2002 and went on to receive a Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies from Multnomah University in Portland, OR in 2011. I have 25 years of youth ministry experience both as a volunteer and on staff at both church and parachurch ministries including Younglife and Youth for Christ.
Currently I am single and loves long walks on the beach and know how to cook. Okay, seriously though…I do enjoy cooking as a hobby, especially if bacon, coffee or sushi are involved. I also enjoy photography, exploring on road trips and going to student events. I am also a fan of the University of Washington Huskies, but am perfectly comfortable with making the Buckeyes my second favorite D1 school. Also love my NCCAA Championship Grace Christian University Tigers!
