Pastor Karl:

Pastor Karl has always had a passion for what he refers to as “suburban ministry” and now focuses on the Reynoldsburg community.He feels that the community of the church breaks down the isolation of suburbia and the boundaries that are a result of our structured lives. He has always loved worship because of the fellowship engendered there. And so, he wants us all to know that he is “completely human”. He was born in Toledo, has two sons and a daughter. He spends hours reading historical novels and working on the cottage he and his wife own near Ashland, Ohio. Yet, in his daily work he helps Messiah to focus on outrreach and that, he says, is because of the gifts of her members. A number of people encouraged him to follow his vocation and now he is directing our community programs, but his favorite bible verse sums it up perfectly:”Bear one another’s burdens and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”
