Karl joined 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.
Please pray for our family as we transition back to school routines. Pray for the kids as they adjust to new teachers and classmates, and we especially covet your prayers for Evelyn (16) and Anthony (15) as they face the challenges of High School and the pressures of the culture.
Praise God that Evelyn has been finding healing from her chronic hip pain. We were able to get a proper diagnosis and appropriate physical therapy that has been helping immensely. Please continue to pray for the strengthening of her hip and surrounding muscles.
Please continue to pray that Jessica and I would keep our hearts tethered to Jesus, relying fully on His presence and power in our lives and in our family. Pray for wisdom, unity, patience, and grace as we parent our kids.
