Karen Miner    Office Manager      Aslc@abiding-savior.org

Karen graduated from the University of Maryland (Go Terps!) with a degree in Marketing. Rather than pursue a career in marketing, she instead chose commerce and managed a Kid's Footlocker. This, of course, led her to want a family of her own and she became a stay-at-home mom.

She continues to work, now, as the Abiding Savior office manager. In addition, she studies Chakra Balancing and is a healer at the Braided Way Healing Arts Center in Ellicott Center. In her spare time, she enjoys gardening, painting and muraling.

Richard studied music at The Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, England, and currently teaches music at River Hill High School in Clarksville, Maryland.


Chad Kline      Pastor@abiding-savior.org

Before Seminary, Chad worked in various government and contract jobs.   He's been ordained since 1999.  He's worked at two other congregations prior to coming to Abiding Savior.  He and his family have been at Abiding  Savior since 2006.   He and his wife have two children who are legally theirs; a daughter (the oldest, who according to tradition, will receive the lion’s share of the inheritance. Poor thing doesn’t know there’s so little of it), and a son (who will have to learn to work for his living as well), and two other daughters who are unofficially adopted family members; one from Zambia, and one from Germany, who have become part of their lives and hearts and family.
