Al joined our staff team in 2007 after serving for almost eleven years as pastoral staff at Ross Road Community Church. Previous to that, Al and Karen served with MB Mission as missionaries in Austria.
Al loves to work in the area of administration, to work with new missionaries, to read, to golf, to play games, and to spend time with his family. Al’s main responsibilities at work are to oversee logistical support for the long-term missionaries and Regional Team Leaders. This includes things like processing new missionaries, developing and monitoring budgets, working with missionaries on their support levels and helping them plan their ministry in North America. Karen was also on staff at Ross Road (Kids Pastor) and since 2007 has worked as a Teacher's Assistant at MEI Elementary. Karen loves to play games, read, play piano and spend time with her family. Al and Karen have two daughters. Karissa is studying at Trinity Western University and is planning to become an elementary school teacher. She loves working with children, enjoys music and reading and loves to point out that she was born in Salzburg, Austria. Natasha went to YWAM in Germany after Grade 12, spent a year at Columbia Bible College, and has completed one year at Pacific Life Bible College in a music program. She loves music (writing and performing) and encouraging others through prayer.
