Lindsey Knapp

Lindsey has always loved working with children. When she was in high school, babysitting was her favorite activity; she’d push children in their strollers down city sidewalks, dance with them during dinner, and pray over their cribs when they fell asleep. At the same time, she had a bit of a non-traditional childhood herself: born in rural Oklahoma, her family moved to New York City when she was thirteen. Growing up in the space between these two cultures--north and south, rural and urban, homogenous and diverse, working-class and affluent--was both exhilarating and confusing, and it gave her a lifelong appreciation of cultural differences and a perpetual inability to succinctly answer the question, “So where are you from?”

Lindsey went to Belmont University in Nashville, TN, and it was during her college years that the Lord strengthened her faith and solidified her identity as his beloved. He also gave her a heart for missions and introduced her to the concept of a Third Culture Kid, or TCK, which led her to pursue summer internships with Serge in both Bundibugyo, Uganda and Cusco, Peru. Both of these experiences deepened her passion for working with TCKs and their families, her love for Serge as an organization, and her excitement about the Lord’s work in the world. When she worked in Kids Ministry at a church in Nashville after college, her heart for families grew and the Lord taught her a great deal about working in ministry and resting every day in His love for her.

She is thrilled to return to Bundibugyo, this time as a missionary kid teacher. Her heart is to love and serve missionary families in every way she can, to support the missionaries’ work in the community by providing educational support for their children, and to see how God’s grace is already at work in Bundibugyo.
