Karen Jacobs

Living Well Kids Director

Karen is the Director of Living Well Kids Ministry.  She has a passion for connecting with children and families of all ages.  Karen and her Living Well Kids Ministry team desire deep, meaningful, authentic relationships with the disciplers (teachers) and the kids, striving to live in community like Jesus would. Karen helps provide an environment that is safe, welcoming, and fun! Our ministry trusts God’s word which says in Proverbs 22:6 to “train up children in the way they should go so that even when they are older they will not depart from it.”  We believe that this happens through learning about and studying the Bible, as well as living life together in authentic relationships. Karen considers it a pleasure to be able to serve the Lord and her community in this way.    

Karen considers herself to be the luckiest girl around to be married to her husband, Chris, since 2006.  They have a daughter, Macie, in 4th grade who loves to sing, dance, and perform, and a son, Brady, in 1st grade who loves everything sports related.  She is a Licensed Social Worker, but took an 8 year break to be a full time stay at home mom.  She now loves being a teachers aide at her kids’ school. Karen is a self-proclaimed Pinterest-aholic who loves crafts of all types, reading Amish fiction books, vacationing to anywhere warm and on the water, chai lattes, and chocolate.
