Pastor Karen has a passion for helping disciples hear the Holy Spirit for themselves, growing and following Him to their unique calling. She has walked the journey of a lay person growing into pastoral leadership, and believes all disciples are capable of the unimaginable transformation and empowerment through Christ.
Several years ago, Karen stepped into the Discipleship Pastor role, championing a community of disciples making disciples. In 2009, she received her Masters of Ministry Leadership from Rockbridge Seminary. Karen has been around St. John long enough to have dug into all the ministry corners.
She is married to Jim and they have 2 mostly precious cats, and is an avid equestrian, enjoying frequent time with her horse.
One of her favorite scriptures is Proverbs 3:5-6, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways submit to him and he will direct your paths."
