Nancy Missler

Nancy MisslerNancy Klitten Missler, age 77, went to be with the Lord November 11, 2015. Nancy has loved our Lord Jesus Christ for over 50 years. She asked Christ to come into her life in 1957 at Hollywood Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles. That same year, while attending UCLA, Nancy met and married Chuck, her husband of 58 years.[1]

Nancy started her ministry The King's High Way about 40 years ago as she began to wonder, What does it mean to love God?  And how do we do that in a practical way? It started as a word study and became The Way of Agape – a study that has transformed lives all over the world. This book has sold over 400,000 copies and now is available in Spanish, DVDs, leader’s guides with all sorts of resources for small groups. It didn’t stop there, she went on to wonder. “What does it mean to renew your mind?” (Be Ye Transformed)  She found and taught a practical way of taking every thought captive; giving your emotions to God and letting Him work through you!

She continued to write about what God was teaching her through the trials in her life. She went on to author Faith in the Night Seasons (how to have unshakable faith despite circumstances), Private Worship, Reflections of His Image, Kingdom Power and Glory and Hope Against Hope, which talked about what God was showing her through struggle with cancer. These are “heftier” in-depth studies have sold over 750,000 copies. She also wrote some “Plain and Simple” smaller books such as Why Should I be the First to Change? At her high school reunion, her English teacher was shocked that Nancy become an author (she would have been the “least likely to…”). Nancy was able to do all this because she was pursuing God and she was willing and obedient to do what He called her to do. These studies took off and she ended up teaching conferences all over the world: U.S. and Canada, U.K., China, New Zealand, Australia and even Tasmania. Unlike Chuck, she was not a natural born speaker. She sought the Lord in every detail and would prepare for weeks before a conference. She had a nervous tick, her nose would run every time she got on stage or in front of a camera. So she always had a piece of Kleenex tucked in her sleeve.

Speaking was not her gifting, but she saw it as an opportunity to help others. She loved encouraging others. She started her ministry, The King’s Highway, to encourage Christians in how to practically walk out their faith. Giving Christians the tools to be real, to love others with God’s unconditional love, to renew your mind, to have unshakable faith… all to change lives!

She bore this horrible cancer like a saint, never complaining or blaming someone else. Just carrying her burden and seeking Jesus.
She wrote her last book Hope Against Hope to encourage others who are on the same journey of suffering. Even after that book was published, she continued to write, what she called The Last Chapter. She worked on it tirelessly.
