Children's Pastor

Hi all! My name is Karli Overgaauw. I have attended CCF since we moved to Texas from California in 2019. From the moment we joined I started volunteering in the nursery, and after a few years I was asked to start helping in kids connection. I truly have loved getting to know the kids in our community and pray I make an impact in their lives like they have mine!
I am a wife and mama to my three amazing children. Lyla (9), Wade (8) and Beau (6) and I love that being the youth leader at CCF allows me to not only worship and praise God at church with your kids, but with my own as well. I am convinced there is nothing better than watching your children worship the Lord! I pray that my time here with your most precious and prized processions God has placed upon each and every one of you will result in a daily love to praise their Jesus! Forever His word upon their lips!

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”  Isaiah 41:10


Hey y'all!! I became part of the CCF staff in 2021 as Youth Pastor. I have been involved in Youth Ministry in one way or another for over 20 years. I have four amazing kids, Annika, Adisyn, Alerick, and Asher. We enjoy the outdoors and look forward to any opportunity to hike, camp, fish, or hunt.

"Be on your guard, stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love."  1 Corinthians 16:13-14
