Karen founded iHOPE Ministries with her husband, Renod, to come alongside the Church and change the way everyday Christians think about sharing their faith with Muslims and other non-Believers. Since 2011, iHOPE has emboldened tens of thousands of Christians worldwide to share the hope of Jesus across cultural and religious divides.
While her husband grew up as a persecuted Christian raised in Islamic nations, Karen grew up in America’s heartland unaware of people of other faiths. She pursued the American Dream and built a successful career as a corporate executive. But God had other plans. Now she uses her corporate skills to embolden everyday Christian women to share their faith across religious boundaries.
A fearless, relatable visionary, and inspiring coach, Karen hosts the “Blue Cord” podcast, a catalyst for Christian women who know they “should be” sharing their faith. She champions iHOPE’s women’s initiative by the same name.
When she’s not changing how Believers think about sharing Jesus, Karen and her husband enjoy spending their time hiking forests and enjoying good Lebanese food with family and friends.
