It was in college that he also began dating Melanie Dawson in August 1997. They married in 2003 and now have three remarkable children: Kaleb 13, Madison 11, and Morgan 9.

He instructs and evaluates pilots according to the company standards and procedures.

 

Karl was an active child at church growing under the watch of Rev. Dr. Edwin Simmons of New Friendship MB Church. After marrying Melanie, He joined New Morningstar MB Church in 2003 and served on the Youth Ministry (GOD Squad) staff from 2003-2008.

He obtained a Masters Degree in Theology from Moody Theological Seminary in May 2018. One of his favorite Scriptures is Romans 8:31, “What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” (NIV)

 

When Karl has free time, he likes to sleep, spend time with his family, go to the movies, and bowl!
