Children's Director, Candice Knibb

I’m Candice Knibb (Candi for short) and I am incredibly excited about being New Victoria Baptist Church’s new Children’s Ministry Director!


A little bit about me: I was born and raised in California. Met my husband Randy in 1998 and we got married in 2004. We’ve moved around a lot! But we found our forever home in Georgia! We have lived in Woodstock for almost 6 years.  We have 2 children: Alyssa, who is 13 and a 7th grader at E.T. Booth and Matthew, who is 8 and in 2nd grade at Boston.  We have 3 fur babies: Elsa, our yellow lab, Dot, our Miniature Australian Shepherd, and Olive, our bobtail kitty.


When I am not serving at New Victoria, I am substitute teaching at Boston and attending Grand Canyon University. My major is Elementary Education. I am also the Special Events chair for the Boston PTA.

Some funny things: I LOVE anything Marvel! Especially Captain America! Disneyland, Disney World and the beach are my happy places and I find doing laundry very relaxing!  In my spare time, you’ll most likely find me curled up in my overstuffed chair watching Avengers or in the basement making shirts or crafting!
