Karen Peterson has been involved in worship leading for over 15 years and has served Bethel Church as a worship leader since 2006. As a child, Karen was powerfully impacted with an experience of God's presence in worship, placing in her a passion for song and creativity. In her young adulthood, she pursued an education at North Central University in Minneapolis, Minnesota, studying music for four years. She is a voice for the church, with a heart to see a generation raise a unified voice in worship and praise. Karen now lives in Redding, California, with her husband, Joshua, and daughter, Mari, and serves Bethel Church in many other capacities. She travels and ministers in churches locally and abroad and has plans to record her first music project in the near future.
