Karl is the newest addition to the FLM staff, joining the team in 2019. He has been married to his incredible wife Jessica since 2004 and they live with their 5 children in Columbia, SC. Karl grew up in rural West Michigan but moved to South Carolina to complete his undergraduate degree in Theology at Columbia International University. He enjoys anything athletic and competitive, from basketball to Bocce ball, from ultimate frisbee to a rousing game of Spades (because no one in the south knows how to play Euchre). Family is everything to Karl. He loves spending his time whooping up on his kids playing basketball in the driveway, wrestling with all the kiddos on the floor, or getting as far away from them as possible to have a quiet date night with his beautiful bride.
Karl and Jessica: Please pray as we continue the search for a church home for our family. It’s been a challenging process over the past year but we desire to hear God’s voice in this decision. Please continue to pray for us as we work to parent from a place of grace, being a proper representation of our gracious heavenly father.
The Kiddos: Evelyn, Anthony, Lillian, and Charlotte are all in school this year. Keep praying for them to continually be lights of love and encouragement to their friends. Please pray specifically for Evelyn (14) and Anthony (13) as they grow through these very influential teen years. Pray that God would protect their hearts from the worldly influences around them and that He would keep drawing them closer toward Himself and His kingdom.
