Jillian Hankamer, Minister to Youth
Jillian was born and raised in Texas. She graduated with her undergraduate degree from Stephen F. Austin State University in 2008 with a double major in Social Work and History. In May 2012 Jillian received her M.Div from The McAfee School of Theology, where she was on the Christian Social Ethics track.
Jillian has previously served as a CBF Collegiate Congregational Intern in Grayson, Georgia, worked for CBF as a General Assembly Intern, and was deeply involved at Northside Drive Baptist Church in Atlanta. This is her first time on a church staff and she is thrilled to be part of the KBC family.
Our office staff is the backbone of KBC and touches nearly every aspect and every ministry of our church. They maintain calendars and data bases. They track worship attendance, record contributions, and write checks. They help manage money, answer telephones, and greet visitors. They order supplies, coordinate mailings, and print our bulletins and newsletter – the Kindler. They support committees and organizations and, in many ways, provide front line ministry as they respond and distribute requests for information, prayer, and care. Along with the rest of KBC, they help us strive together to faithfully be the presence of Christ in our community and around the world.
