Jens and Karen were married July 2015. Jens grew up on a dairy farm in south central Wisconsin, and before moving back to his home state he helped grow the Cornerstone Parish of congregations on the north side of Chicago. Karen is from Oak Park, IL, and worked for 10 years as a high school math teacher while volunteering with Young Life, before moving to Wisconsin with Jens to start their family. They have three children, Wilma, Anders, and Nels, and love spending time with them.
