Connections Director

Karen and Tim, along with their two children Brooklyn and Beckett, moved to Boise from San Diego, California in 2015. They moved to Idaho searching for adventure, the beautiful outdoors Boise offers, and a slower paced life for their family. The family found what they were looking for in the North End where you will find them riding bikes through the neighborhood, running trails, mountain biking or out on the lake when they have time. Soon after moving to the Boise area, they began attending The Collective. From their first Sunday, they were refreshed by the authenticity and passion of the Collective family. The encouraging messages that The Collective not only preaches but lives out made it evident that they had found home. As the Connections Director, Karen has created a culture at the Collective where people know they are welcomed to be a part of the family. She helps to create an atmosphere that when you attend The Collective, you feel like you are at home. Her passion is to make sure that everyone makes authentic connections with people and to not feel as if you are just another face in the crowd. Karen’s love for creativity, entertaining, and being around people is evident in the warm welcome she creates, along with her team, on Sunday mornings.
