Brian & Mindy Knochenmus

 Elder

Brian Knochenmus grew up at Victory, and he and Mindy have been members of the church for over a decade.  They have been in leadership positions since their youth, recognizing early on how God has gifted and used them in leadership.  As they have grown in service to the church, God has given Brian and Mindy a renewed perspective on leadership: “Servant leadership is pure leadership, and as we pursue God's will for His Church, we put service and the passionate pursuit of Him at the forefront of leadership.”  Their life verse is Matthew 6:24.  "No one can serve two Masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other.  You can not serve God and mammon."  The Knochenmuses have a passion for grabbing hold of God's Word and applying it to their lives and testimonies.   

Brian is our worship leader and serves as an elder.  Mindy's passion to serve involves discipling and mentoring young women in and outside our church body.  Together, Brian and Mindy lead a small group Bible study and mentor couples and families.  The Knochenmus' have seven children: Olivia,
Odessa, Owen, Oakley, Osiah, Ora & Ozak. 

Brian is President and owner of Ralco Nutrition, Inc. of Marshall and Balaton, MN.
  Besides being a busy, full-time wife and mom, Mindy is an active volunteer at True Light Christian School (formerly Marshall Area Christian School) in Marshall.  She also mentors several young women and leads intercessory prayer every other Thursday night at Victory.
