Karl loves adventure. He completed the 1,100-mile Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race at age 18 and coached a multi-racial track team in South Africa. But for over three decades Karl has been on the most incredible adventure of life—following Jesus Christ and enjoying His promises. Karl says his mission is “to inspire a spiritual revolution in the church that reaches the world.” Karl launched two college/career ministries that thrived spiritually. He spoke nationally with his wife, Junanne, at FamilyLife marriage conferences for 11 years and led a dynamic church that grew to be the largest in Alaska. This church was featured on the front page of the New York Times (November 23, 2007) for its strategic outreach and innovation. Karl is host of Moody Radio’s Karl and Crew Mornings on WMBI 90.1 FM Chicago. He is also lead pastor of 180 Chicago. He and Junanne have two adult children.

Jonathan has an educational background in communications, but that wasn’t always where he thought his life would go. Although his plans were to originally work in law enforcement, God shook him up and showed him something beautiful in the world of radio. Jonathan loves to teach the Word of God to help others grow in their walk with Christ. He is the husband to his loving wife, Shannon, and is a die-hard fan of the Chicago Cubs and Chicago Bears.
