This is Karlene’s first year in the IMA and she couldn’t be more excited! At age seventeen, she is our youngest intern yet, but she is ready to conquer and grow in her walk with God. Outside of her weekly involvement on the worship team or helping with administrative duties at church, she does a lot of babysitting. When she is able, however, she loves taking the time to do paper crafting. A clean house, kids, and hanging out with friends bring her joy! Karlene joined the IMA to gain a greater understanding of the Bible and ministry and believes that this chapter in her life will be a great stepping stone to her future. In addition, she hopes to continue growing in her love for worship, her ability to lead, increase in communication skills, and, maybe even contribute to a future church plant that her eldest brother has dreamed of.
