Mark & Karen Kerford

Tuesdays at 6:30 PM

Mark is a senior electronics assembly technician for Altec Industries in St. Joseph, where he has worked for over 30 years.  Karen retired  from the St. Joseph school district in 2009, after 33 years as a special education teacher. Karen now enjoys spending time volunteering at The Spotted Dog. They have been married since October 22, 1977.

Mark and Karen have raised three children.  Rachel and her husband Tim, live in Anchorage, Alaska. Alex and his wife Maria live in St. Louis with their children, Anderson and Lydia. They are very involved at Jubilee Church- StL, city location (also in the Confluence church family.)  Christopher, the youngest, lives in Jacksonville, FL. Mark and Karen enjoy visiting their kids around the country, but love it when they’re all home at once.

Karen has earned a reputation as a camera-toting picture fanatic (she took 900 pictures in one week in Alaska!).  Mark enjoys riding his bicycle, puzzles and has been known to relax by reciting perfect squares (you know; 1, 4, 9, 16…he’s got the first 150 memorized and likes to calculate the rest from there).  They enjoy traveling and opening their home to spend time with family and friends.

Mark and Karen love Jesus, love their community group, and love Living hope Church.  They desire to see people grow to know Jesus better and to experience His love for themselves.
