Kaylyn Briscoe

Children's Ministry Director

I grew up at Lake of the Ozarks under the care of my outdoorsy and adventurous dad and my mercy-giving and compassionate mom. Northwest Missouri State is where I received my dual degree in elementary education and special education. I moved to Columbia in 2006 to teach special education for Columbia Public Schools.

During this time, God called me to serve as the children’s ministry director at CFC in a full-time capacity and I began serving in that way in 2008. My husband and I were married in 2011 and he moved from the Kansas City area to join in the call of God to serve Him with our lives. We were given the gift of parenthood in 2015 to our two beautiful children. Our heart is to love God first, live in Him daily, and worship Him in His church through our lives.

Kaylyn’s Likes

My other passions are nature and travel. On my hardest days, I want to put everything I need in a backpack and go climb a mountain. I love learning how to be a better wife and parent who gets to disciple my kids, and other kids and parents with my husband. We have a dog who we love in spite of her quirks, and she loves us back. I aspire to be a fusion chef and organic gardener who lives in a tiny house and travels the countryside with my darling husband when we’re old.

Kaylyn’s Motivations

My daily dependence on God for His purposes in calling me. A vision that God gave me as a child of what He was calling me to that has come to reality still astounds me to this day. He ordains our steps… Now I need to rely on my faith muscle memory to get me moving every day. “Nothing gives me greater joy than to hear that my children are following the way of Truth!” 3 John 1:4
