I've been married to Karen Carlson for nearly 41 years! We have 2 daughters and 2 granddaughters -- our youngest daughter, Karly, plays the piano (and sings) on our Worship Team, and I fiddle along with the violin. My wife, Karen, is active in KITW and has taught Sunday school over the years; as for me, I have served on the Church Board previously and have enjoyed serving on the worship team for the past 5 years, as well. Karen and I have attended Hermiston Church of the Nazarene since moving here in 1989, although I also grew up in the Nazarene Church. I am a retired high-school science teacher and wrestling coach (Hermiston), and am also retired from the Military and Johnson Controls Battery Plant. I currently teach Biology as a part-time instructor for BMSS at the Hermiston Campus,and enjoy communing with God in the mountains whnever I can. As for our Church Board, I feel that I have something to contribute to our Board, and am honored to accept the nomination. My passion is to encourage others, and devote more of my life to leading others to Christ.
