Kyleigh Petrella

Missy Knechel

Kyleigh’s passion since she was a young child 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. She was a youth intern at Calvary Assembly in Wyncotte, PA during college. 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 even the youngest kids can encounter God’s presence as mightily as the adults!

God brought Kyleigh, her husband, and their dogs to the Norristown area in 2017 just in time to celebrate the Eagles Superbowl Victory. Since then their family has grown to a family of 3 with their daughter who knows Sundays are for Jesus, family, and the Birds!
