Our Associate Priest directs the Krauth Memorial Library and teaches courses in Church History at the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia. He earned his Ph.D. in History from the University of Michigan and has pastored a German/English congregation in Philadelphia and a Slovak/English congregation in Windsor, Ontario.

He has published in Lutheran Quarterly, Church History, and ATLA Proceedings. He was the keynote speaker at two recent Lutheran Synod Conventions: Southeast Penn (2012) and Northeast Penn (2015). He presented at the Southeast Penn’s Bishop’s Convocation in 2011 and its Youth Gathering in 2013. In June 2007, he was chosen to participate in an overseas seminar entitled “The Reformation of the Book, 1450-1700.” This five week colloquium was funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities and met in Antwerp and Oxford, England. He has also studied in Germany and Poland.

As Associate Priest, Karl, leads us in worship, teaches, and works with our Music & Worship Committee, Stewardship, Outreach, and Christian Education. He is an avid model railroader and is passionate about trolley cars. At home he is micromanaged by an adorable pit bull named “Rosie.”
