Kyleigh Petrella

Missy Knechel

Kyleigh’s passion since she was a young child herself has been helping other kids build a relationship with Christ. Growing up as a pastor’s kid in New Jersey, she was heavily involved in all areas of children’s ministry, especially those roles that allowed her to dress up as crazy characters.

She fell in love with the people of the Greater Philadelphia area while attending Arcadia University where she received her Bachelor’s in Communications in 2010. During college, she was a youth intern at Calvary Assembly in Wyncotte, PA. Upon graduation, she continued her passion for ministry at her home church, New Life Assembly in Egg Harbor Township, NJ as the VBS Director, Youth Leader, KidzChurch Worship Leader, and Director of GrowthZone for Kids during their mid-week service. She believes that the youngest of kids can encounter God’s presence just as mightily as the adults!

God brought Kyleigh and her husband Derek, along with their two dogs Jazzy and Miss Pinkis to the Greater Norristown Area in 2017 just in time to celebrate the Eagles Superbowl Championship. He recently blessed them with a beautiful daughter Alandria, who already knows how silly her mom can be!
