Introducing Jennifer Knott -- Sky Mom's Ministry Director

Hi there!

My name is Jennifer, and I'm excited to announce that I’m the new Sky Mom's Ministry Director. The journey to this role has been a long one -- a lifetime in the making, I think. And I’m confident this is the next right thing God has planned for me in ministry. I look forward to sharing more about the ways in which God has used my story to bring me to this new place very soon.

I’m a pastor's wife and a mom to three kids.

I've been married to my best friend, Kory, for almost 18 years. We serve in one of the local churches in Plano, Texas. We were born in the same hospital, grew up on the same street, had the same third grade teacher, and his aunt babysat me, but we didn’t meet until my cousin set us up on a blind date in 1994! Kory is a gifted preacher and pastor, my biggest supporter, an amazing dad, and a lot of fun. When we aren't serving in ministry, we enjoy date night, camping with the family, cooking, traveling, and entertaining in our home.

Taylor, our oldest, is in sixth grade. She’s a free spirit, an old soul, and never meets a stranger! Taylor is in the youth group at church, where she is involved in a community group and youth choir. Outside of church, she participates in our local children's theater, plays the flute in the school band, and takes piano and voice lessons. She’s also a competitive swimmer.

Zachary, our oldest son, is in third grade. It's a toss-up as to where he gets his red hair because we have it on both sides of the family! Zachary is an extremely compassionate and affectionate child, and I’m smitten that he tells me I’m beautiful daily. He enjoys school, plays the piano, sings in children's choir at church, is gifted in art, and is currently playing baseball. This summer, he wants take a swing at golf.

Reed, our youngest -- the one I often refer to as "Little Bit" -- is in Kindergarten. His debut into full-time school sent this mama into a tail spin for a little while last fall! Reed has a witty sense of humor, a loving heart, and is always ready to wrestle with his dad. Though I miss him at home, he has enjoyed being at school with his siblings. He sings in children's choir at church, played soccer in the fall, and is currently playing baseball.

I’m an attorney and a certified mediator. For the past ten years, I’ve had the privilege of working a flexible schedule as a business litigator so that I could effectively balance the commitments of family, ministry, and my work. This has been one of God’s greatest gifts to me in my adult life.

As a partner in ministry with Kory, I’ve served in countless roles within the local church. Most recently, I served on the women’s ministry leadership team as we launched a new ministry in 2015. I’m currently serving on the church building committee while it oversees a building renovation, and I sing on one of our praise teams.

Outside of family and ministry, I enjoy connecting with women whenever I can, writing my personal blog, reading, practicing yoga, trying new recipes (which requires more yoga!), and traveling.

I love families. I can’t even tell you how much. I believe that healthy families are one of God’s greatest gifts to the world because they are uniquely positioned to make a difference in the communities where they live. One of my heart’s greatest passions is to facilitate small groups on the topics of marriage and family. To encourage moms and dads as they strive to build healthy, strong relationships with Christ, each other, and their kids. And to inspire them to see their families as opportunities to bring the Gospel to the world.

I also love Sky Ranch. In fact, our family is immersed in the ministries of this camp. It began with renting facilities in Van for youth weekends back in the 90s and has culminated with participation in Launch Camp, Family and Overnight Camp, Parent/Child Weekends, and even the outdoor educational experiences created in partnership with the schools. For our family, being on camp is one of the most life-giving experiences we enjoy all year, and we’re always counting the days until we get to come back.

It is my privilege and honor to partner with an amazing team of men and women to bring the gift of Sky Ranch to other families and to minister specifically to moms -- the hearts of the homes we serve. If I can do anything to serve your family in a specific way, please let me know.


I covet your prayers as we begin this journey together!
Jennifer Knott
