Karen has been involved in many church ministries primarily serving as the lead Retreat coordinator for Rachel’s Vineyard in the Phoenix area since attending her Retreat in January 2000.
She also coordinates the monthly support group, Mantle of Hope, for healing after abortion. Rachel’s Vineyard, which is now in over 30 different countries, is the first Retreat Dr. Theresa Burke, the founder of “Grief to Grace,” created for post-abortive healing.
Karen felt a calling to Grief to Grace after attending a pilot Retreat at a Rachel’s Vineyard leadership conference in 2006. Karen serves as a volunteer with Restore Dignity as the liaison for Rachel’s Vineyard.
