Karen’s message can encourage you and inspire your faith in God.
Through many challenges in her own life, she has learned that the faithfulness and love of God can always be depended on, and her heart’s desire is to pass that knowledge along to others, helping them to learn and grow in their walk with God. Her life is dedicated to inspiring people to believe for victory in every area of their lives.
Karen has been in the ministry for more than 25 years.
She and her husband, Brent, traveled full time as itinerant ministers, and also pioneered two churches in the Northwest. In 1997, upon Brent’s unexpected death, she became Senior Pastor of their church in Boise, Idaho. She raised their sons, Josh and Ryan, through their teenage years into young adults on fire for God. Karen is an instructor at Rhema Bible Training College in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. In March of 2014, she married Minneapolis businessman Bob Salisbury.
Karen wants to share what she has learned about the faithfulness of God through good times and bad. Her humor, her never-give-up attitude, her love for God and her strong stand on His Word lifts people up and inspires them to believe for victory in every area of their lives.
