Brianna was born in Houston, TX to a Christian family. Her family was very involved in the life of Champion Forrest Baptist Church, where Brianna was part of the Children’s Choir and Praise Team. Each night, Brianna and her dad would read the Bible before bed. It was through these times of discipleship that at the age of 7, she recognized the need for a lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ. Brianna was baptized at CFBC shortly after. In 2016, Brianna graduated from the University of South Florida with a degree in French and a degree in Foreign Language Education. It was in college that Brianna went on a mission trip to Miami where she met Matthew Knutson. They married in 2017.
Brianna began her ministry at Mission Hill Church as the Mission Hill Kids Ministry Assistant in 2015. Through working in Mission Hill Kids Ministry, God has strengthened her passion for equipping children and families to follow Jesus. In 2018, Brianna became the Director of Kids Ministries at Mission Hill Church. Brianna loves having the best job in the world of being around kids, equipping parents, and teaching about Jesus every day!
