Pastor Karl's personal goal in ministry is to inspire, mobilize, and lead the Radford body of believers to know, love, serve, and share the Lord Jesus Christ in this community and in the nations. He is excited about the gospel going out and engaging our community for Christ. He loves the way the body at Radford genuinely loves one another and its appetite for God.
