Our Director

Michelle Brandt was born in Cape Town, South Africa. She and her family arrived in the U.S. on May 12, 2000 and one of their most special moments was when they became citizens in December, 2010.  She has completed her Masters in Educational Leadership from Penn State University.

Michelle's relationship with Jesus began when she was 16 years old. She finds her peace in the fact that God never changes and that His Word is true.

Michelle has been married to her husband Paul for 26 years and they have been blessed with two daughters: Janine and Micaela. They have been attending Fairview Village Church since 2000 and have participated in small groups, the pre-marital ministry and serving at the café.

Michelle writes, "I am thankful to be part of Kids in the Village staff. I have worked here since 2006 and in my present role; I am humbled to know that daily we have the opportunity to be Christ’s hands and feet."

Michelle's other interests include reading, family movie night, and she also enjoys visiting the Outerbanks and New York.
