Pastor Karl has been a pastor in the area for about 15 years. Most of that time, he has been bi-vocational. Currently, he and Laura live in Rock Port, MO. Their 3 kids are grown and attending college and beginning careers. His philosophy of ministry is that "Love conquers all" and when we focus on the Great Commission and the Great Commandments, God will grow a great church. The church is not about the building and the programs it is about people. It is an organism, not an organization.
