Karen has been working with The Bucket Ministry since 2018. After 5 years working in the defense industry, first in Contracts, then in Export Compliance, Karen went on her first mission trip with TBM to the Amazon River. After seeing the lives changed, both in health and in Spirit, Karen knew God was in this ministry and she wanted to be a part of it. Upon her return to the states, Karen met with Chris and his wife, Sheri, to inform them she planned to leave her current job to join TBM team.
Karen serves as the Director of Global Missions with TBM. This involves keeping up to date with their international partners, planning and preparing mission trips, leading trips, training teams (both nationally and internationally), logistics, and everything in between.
Currently, Karen lives in Greenville with her two dogs, Phineas and Oliver. She’s a novice in quilting, an avid book reader, and a student at Fuller Seminary.
