ABOUT KAREN

RECOMMENDED READING
Think Orange by Reggie Joyner

FIRST JOB
Training new cashiers at a grocery store.

INSPIRATION
Watching people figure out what God designed them for and getting them plugged into doing that job in their own church family. Watching others that have gone before me and have been successful. I love reading biographies to learn where great people have stumbled, failed, and still recovered and moved on to do great things. Seeing how God has chosen those people who, to the world, looked like failures and yet, He molds them into someone He can use.

BIGGEST CHALLENGE
Raising four children.

ROLE AT HULEN STREET
My role at Hulen Street is to minister to preschoolers and their families by providing a safe, loving, and learning environment. I see what happens in the preschool classrooms as essential and necessary. Everything that happens here at church should help preschoolers learn more about the truths of the Bible. By providing a place that is engaging and secure for preschoolers, their parents and guardians have an opportunity to step away for a moment and really worship, learn, and serve. And ultimately, we as a church can partner with parents to help provide opportunities and information that will help each child grow and develop spiritually.

Karen has served with Hulen Street Church since 2013.
