Jason and Kellie Knapp
Kellie and I have been married longer now than we have been single. We are best friends. Together, we have 4 incredible children. Micah and Sophia are both in College, Malachi is in high school and Hezzie in elementary school. We both grew up in Waukesha County before heading overseas as church planters among the Tobo people of Papua New Guinea. We returned to Wisconsin in 2010 and have been serving God in various capacities, both in church and Christian nonprofit leadership roles. We accepted God’s call to serve the KMCC congregation in July of 2019 and trust that God will use us to equip the saints for the work of the ministry.
Having spent 8+ years in the country of Papua New Guinea uniquely shaped our view of taking the gospel to the ends of the earth and pastoring a local congregation. We learned that evangelization and pastoring are less about strategy and slick methods and more about being present with ordinary people in ordinary places and in ordinary situations, demonstrating love for God and love for others, to the best of our ability, for the sake of Jesus and the salvation of souls. Our hope and prayer is that as we as a congregation walk through the ups and downs of life together that we will see the love of Jesus through our love for one another and experience the hope of eternal life in Him.
Director of Ministries
I have been attending the church since it was founded in 1995, growing up in our children’s ministry and youth group. After High School, I attended New Tribes Bible Institute (now Ethnos360) for one year, then decided to pursue my passion for music. I've been in several bands and have traveled around the country playing music. Even though I didn't see it at the time, God was preparing me to be in ministry.
In the spring of 2013, I came on staff part-time as the Worship Coordinator and in 2018 I began serving as Director of Ministries full-time. Currently I am attending Trinity International University Online working towards a degree in Christian Ministries.
God has given me a real burden to spread the gospel to everyone I meet, to bring unity to the body of Christ, and to become more like Jesus every day as I grow closer to him.
"The church is about drawing people closer to God by allowing the Holy Spirit to work within us to become more like Christ which is pleasing and acceptable to God."
"I have been a Christian since coming to saving faith in 1987. I have three children and run a small commercial loan finance company called Bellwether Funding. I am active in the music ministries at KMCC and run a clothing drive each year to collect Winter clothing for the Milwaukee Rescue Mission. I live in Delafield with my wife, Cindy, and we have three adult children. My passion is to give back to KMCC since it has given my family so much over the years. My family and I have been active members of KMCC since 2004."
"As one of the founding members of KMCC, I am passionate about maintaining the unity of our church body and glorifying Christ in my everyday life."
