Pastor Karen surrendered her life to Jesus on December 25, 1995 after the unexpected death of her husband. For the sake of her own life and the life of her daughter, she set her eyes on the Lord as she was so lost and alone at that time. Now, she marvels at the goodness and faithfulness of the Lord! She has a passion to see people connect with Jesus and to grasp How much He loves them and that He truly is a good God.

She led short term mission trips to Costa Rica, Haiti, Nicaragua, Russia, New York, California, and Brazil. She also ministered in Kenya and Panama. She currently lives in Oldsmar with her daughter, 2 dogs, 2 cats and is a Therapeutic Foster Parent and a Chaplain at the Pinellas County jail. All for Him and because of Him.
