Mike and Karen became involved with student ministry while at university. There they gained a heart for the Great Commission and for the impact that university students can have upon their world as they give their lives to Christ. Mike has worked with Power to Change for 18 years and Karen for 19 years. They spent time in East Asia working with university students there to help build movements of Christ-centered followers who would grow, share their faith and in turn teach others. Now, they reside in Saskatoon where Mike leads the International Student side of Power To Change which has 14 staff on 7 universities in 6 cities and student leaders in several others.
The Mission of Power To Change -- International Students is 'To Change the World by helping international students Discover Jesus'. Our vision is that 'we long for the day when no international student graduates without engaging in the message of Jesus.'
Mike and Karen married in 2003 and now have 4 boys, Elijah - 9, Isaak - 7, Zachary - 5, and Joseph 2.
