Cara joined the Poplar Creek ministry team in 2019. Before becoming a pastor, she worked in several fields including business, marketing, teaching, and writing. As a PK (Pastor’s Kid), she also brings years of experience in church leadership. Cara graduated from Fuller Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity and from Fairleigh Dickinson University with a Master of Fine Arts. She also graduated summa cum laude from UW Whitewater with a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature.

When Cara isn’t studying or writing (she knows this sounds boring but insists it isn’t), she and her husband, David, enjoy spending time with their four children. As a family, they like music, art, movies, building things, and volunteering. And while it sounds redundant in a place with so many Disney enthusiasts, Disney World happens to be their favorite vacation locale.

But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed.

ISAIAH 53:5
