in congregational work throughout their church life.

For four years, from 2000-4, they have lived in
Los Angeles, California. They moved there to allow
Carlos to finish his theological education at Fuller
Theological Seminary, where he was awarded a Masters

not only of fulltime studies but also real congregational
work. They have also worked together as pastors
and church planters. Their son Elias was born during
this time in Los Angeles.
Karolin truly loves working with people both and
in and outside of congregations, and is also a nurse.
