Pastor Karl joined the staff of United Lutheran Church in May 2014.  He grew up in North Easton, Massachusetts.  He attended college at Gustavus Adolphus in St. Peter, MN. Following his studies at Gustavus he worked as a respiratory therapist at a local hospital where he met a beautiful nurse named Laura. They were married and have two children, Siri and Anders.  He attended seminary at the Lutheran School of Theology at Gettysburg and has served both as a parish pastor and chaplain in hospital and long-term care settings. Pastor Karl is passionate about caring for those in need, particularly those who have experienced many years of life and he treasures the wisdom, insight and faith stories they have to share.  In his free time, he likes to read, play softball and golf, cook, walk with Laura and visit with family and friends.  He looks forward to meeting…and getting to know…you!
