Karen Bennett

Seminarian Intern


Karen Bennett serves as a seminarian intern at Souderton Mennonite Church. She is a second-year Master of Divinity candidate at Palmer Theological Seminary and a scholar of the Campolo Center for Ministry at Eastern University. Karen is originally from the Jersey Shore, having met her husband Paul at Lafayette College, where they both graduated with degrees in engineering.

Karen’s calling is to bring imagineering to the church. Imagineering is a term she uses to describe the intersection of engineering, pastoral leadership, and prophetic wisdom to encourage and build up beloved community in Christ. She believes the church is to be a learning community that is committed to growing, to transforming, and to being transformed by God’s grace into Christ’s likeness.

Karen enjoys taking long walks and spending time with her husband and two children, Emily and John. When she is not coaching, playing, or cheering on local sports teams, she is undoubtedly learning about the miracles of God and rediscovering the joy of childlike wonderment
