Karley is a recent graduate at Fuller Seminary in the Masters of Theology and Ministry program. The past two years, Karley has worked as De Pree Center’s Marketing Lead. During her time in this role she learned to best integrate her love for pastoral ministry and business. Currently as the De Pree Center’s Network and Collaboration Manager, Karley is called to strengthen the Faith, Work, and Economic Network (F.W.E). She aims to build strategic, vibrant, and meaningful relationships in and around these conversations that lead to consistent collaboration for future endeavors. Her heart for the F.W.E Network is to continuously lead with empathy and vision that in turn leads to those on the margins feeling welcomed to these spaces of leadership. She hopes to cast a wider, theologically robust, and more inclusive vision for the F.W.E network. Building partnerships that foster collaboration is a space where Karley feels most alive in her gifts.
