Don and Karen
Pastoral Coach to men and women in difficult places
We're Don and Karen. We loved living in the Middle East. But there was a lot of turmoil. Many of our cross-cultural friends were discouraged and distracted. For some reason, they came to us for encouragement and hope.
We sensed that God was directing us to do something about that. So we decided to serve them full-time.
Don comes alongside field leaders and team members to help them thrive in their faith and stay effective in their calling. He meets regularly online with them or visits them on the field.
He also trains on fruitful practices of ministry; life development; and building healthy teams.
Karen is an equal partner in our work. She developed a language learning program, "Street Ready in 10 Weeks." She taught over 300 workers in this method. In recent years, Karen's health has forced her to support our work from behind the scenes.
