Creation RPG Character You Dragons and Dungeons The Engineer says...
It appears to be easier to stick divine magic and other such things onto a bard than it is to stick bardic knowledge onto anything else.
With that in mind, I would suggest dropping the Divine Bard ACF, and either stick with the classic, or pick up something else. Bardic Sage ACF for instance seems particularly good, and it actually gives a bonus to bardic knowledge checks. Though we probably want to confirm with Kn what version he wants to use, as the one I'm familiar with comes from UA as well.
Once that's set, you could dip cleric, or pick up devotion feats, or go into a number of divine related PrCs.
In that line of thinking, one of my favorite bard concept builds involves using Crusader (Tome of Battle's nonalignment restricted version of the Paladin) dips to pick up Song of the White Raven along with other boosts. Done right, that combo can turn Inspire Courage into a powerhouse of a buff, and Thomas into an inspiring battle leader.
