KC Knippa - DCE
Hello, my name is KC Knippa and I am the Director of Christian Education – Youth/Family Minister & Worship Leader.I was born and raised in the southern suburbs of Kansas City, MO, where most of my family still resides. I have been blessed with a large immediate family – I am the fifth out of six siblings. I am married to my beautiful wife Megan, and together we have 3 wonderful children – Adelaide, Judah, and Kohen.
I am a 2009 graduate from Concordia University Nebraska, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Theology - emphasizing in youth and family ministry.
God has led me and my young family on an unexpected journey and we are excited to begin a new chapter of ministry focused on leading others in finding beauty, goodness, and truth in everyday life. By working with the families here at Concordia, it is my desire to help change the current paradigm of how our 'church' culture views life, community, and faith - a shift from pragmatic thinking to holistic worship!
I joined the Concordia family in December 2014. I am married to Kevin and have 2 beautiful daughters, Brittany and Tiffany. We moved to Mesquite, TX in August of 2014, but I originally lived in this area as a child. I am from a large family, with many of them in the ministry. I was raised in church and have been blessed with previous church occupations. I found my special blessing working with Concordia congregation. My heart is to serve.
My name is Dana Batts, and I am the Director of Concordia Learning Center. I have been working with children at Concordia since 2004. I feel that God led me here those many years ago to be a leader to those around me--a Godly and Christian example to the children, parents and teachers. I am also an active member of my own church. My husband and I are involved in Children's Ministry with Sunday School and Children's Church. We are raising our son to follow in our footsteps.
