K.C. Van Atta-Casebier

In a conversation centered around self-worth, Rev. KC joins to talk about their journey and struggles as they have sought to understand caring for themself more. 

Rev. K.C. Van Atta-Casebier (they/them) has served as an Associate Pastor and Director of Family Ministries at Foundry United Methodist Church since January of 2020. 

They find their passion at the intersections of LGBTQIA+ advocacy, the work of anti-racism, education, and family life. K.C. believes that young people are the leaders of today — not tomorrow — and works tirelessly to give kids and youth opportunities for full participation and leadership in the church and the community. In return, the youth make fun of their southern accent. 

K.C. is from Nashville, TN, and spent significant portions of their life in both Montevallo, AL and Martin, TN. They received a B.A. from Trevecca Nazarene University where they majored in Religion and Biology with minors in both Youth Ministry and Genetics. K.C. also played four years of collegiate basketball at Trevecca. In 2019, K.C. graduated summa cum laude from Duke Divinity School. 

A lifelong Methodist who has served in ministry for over ten years, they were commissioned as a provisional Deacon in the Tennessee Conference of the UMC in 2019.

About the Podcast

Active Faith Podcast
Building a theology of self-care together
In the Great Commandment, we hear Jesus call us to not only love God but to also love our neighbors as ourselves. This podcast is about the “as ourselves” part, as we learn what it means to care for ourselves in a holistic way that opens our spirits to more fully care for all of creation.

Andrew Ware

I began running when I was a kid. My mom says I went straight from crawling to running. However, I have been over a lot of hurdles to get to this point, and I would be nowhere without several communities to help me get here.
I am also a pastor in the United Methodist Church, and I have used my passion for creating loving and caring communities to help share God’s grace.
