Serving Beck’s Since: January 2002

Pastor Karl is married to Sonja and has one son – Justin. He is a Ph.D. graduate from Trinity Theological Seminary and is an excellent fly fisher. Being from Alabama, he is an avid college sports fan and will be sure to tell you. God has given him a heart for Beck’s and to every visitor he would say “God purposefully created you so that you can have a relationship with Him. No matter how far you may feel you are from God, His purpose for you will never change.”

He is a graduate of Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and now spends his time shooting Nerf darts at with children. He and his wife, Deanna, have recently welcomed baby Gwen into the world. God has allowed Adam the blessing of being on the frontline in seeing young children devote their lives to Christ and grow in “wisdom, stature, and favor with God and man.”
