Karl Stuckenberg has been a United Methodist pastor for over 25 years. Ordained in 1996 after graduating from the Claremont School of Theology, he has served churches in Long Beach, Fullerton, Corona Del Mar, and was the Lead Pastor of a multi-site church in Mission Viejo and Rancho Santa Margarita.
Ministry is one of the rare vocations where you get the chance to do so many different things. He loves to teach others about the amazing love of God through preaching, storytelling and bringing the Bible to life. He believes we learn best about God in community and for that reason, he's passionate about church camps, mission trips, Bible studies, and anything else that brings people together. Over the last 10 years, he's lead several pilgrimages to the Holy Lands where people have the chance to walk in the footsteps of Jesus and experience the Bible through a brand new lens. And his love of music and the arts brings a creative edge to all aspects of ministry.
Most importantly, he's a husband to Kristen and dad to Kayla and Kendal. When he's not at church, he loves spending time with them. And when they are all busy, he loves to play the drums which he's been doing for over 40 years (just ask the neighbors).
