He was a former Associate Pastor of Irisan Church in Irisan (Baguio, Philippines) from 2010-2015.

A missionary to Asia, Dr. Knight has served in Jakarta, Indonesia from 2015-2020. He also served in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam under the International Mission Board USA from 1999-2000. Prior to joining IGSL, Dr. Knight was Professor at Maranatha Bible College from 2010 to 2015.

As a Professor, Dr. Knight is also keen on research and writing. He is a statistician for Theses and Dissertations. He coordinated the 2019 International Competitions and Assessments for Schools (ICAS) English Writing for a school. As a mental health case worker, he worked with and gave counsel to people with disabilities and Mental Health Mental Retardation issues.

Dr. Knight and his wife Lizette are both full-time faculty members of IGSL and are currently based at the IGSL campus in Quezon City, Philippines. They have been married since 2000 and both enjoy hiking and traveling together as their schedule permits. 

Like what Paul said in 1 Corinthians 9:19-23, Dr. Knight practices “being all things to all people so that some might be saved”.
