Karen BastGuelph Satellite Director Highlands Youth for Christ
Karen has been with YFC since 2005. Beginning as a youth worker in Centre Wellington and doing a variety of things from coaching volleyball to assisting in the Alternative Education classroom, she suddenly found herself leading from centre stage as Satellite Director for Guelph YFC, Highlands’ newest satellite. Karen is passionate about seeing God at work in the lives of people – youth or adults – and loves that YFC provides opportunities for youth to be reached and adult volunteers to GO…out of their comfort zones and bring light to dark places. The rest of Karen’s time is filled with being on mission in the Willow area of Guelph with her 3 kids, Chloe, Liam and Laurel and her churchplanting husband, James. In quiet times she enjoys knitting anything out of 100% natural fibres.
