Karl is a small business owner from the Niagara Peninsula in Ontario. While his business provides his livelihood, he has been involved in various forms of Christian service since earning his bachelor of Theology degree at Ontario Bible College, now Tyndale University. He has a keen interest in youth and mentorship. He has served as a youth pastor, and in many leadership positions in his local church.
In the 1990’s, he worked alongside Canada’s Indigenous Peoples, resulting in a passionate for sharing some of the history of colonialism and the residential schools with other Canadians. He is optimistic about the difference an organization like NorthWind can make when like-minded people strive together to bring about change.
Karl and his wife, Janet, live in St. Catharines, Ontario, have two married children and enjoy spending time with their two grandsons.
