Jennifer Knaak

Director of Development

Jennifer Knaak

Jennifer assumed the role of Director of Development in September 2018 after wearing many different hats at Serge for more than a decade. She and her husband Patric (Director of Renewal) first connected with Serge in the 90’s at a Sonship Marriage retreat. Professionally, Jennifer has been in nonprofit work for over 25 years. For the first eleven years of her career, Jennifer learned the foundations of nonprofit management at a nonprofit in Wheaton, IL ultimately working in senior leadership with responsibility for strategizing financial viability, donor messaging, and crisis management. When she and Patric moved to Philly to work at Serge, Jennifer devoted her time to staying at home with their son Parker, while volunteering at their church and at Serge. In 2010, Veritus Group recruited her to join their team helping nonprofits reach their fundraising goals, mainly in major gifts. Since then, Jennifer has managed dozens of clients and helped hundreds of individuals, gaining tremendous insight herself from these wonderful people.

She is thrilled that God has opened a door to bring the experiences he has given her to benefit an organization about which she cares so deeply.
