Carl’s passion is to proclaim the authority and accuracy of the Bible and to engage the minds and hearts of believers and unbelievers in today’s culture so that they may experience the realities of the Word of God. This happens every time Carl speaks. Whether he speaks to youth or adults, large or small crowds, churches or schools, Carl has a way of connecting with almost everybody; and that is one of the reasons he is a much sought-after speaker both in the United States and abroad. He has spoken in Bermuda, Canada, England, Greece, Israel, Jamaica, Japan, Mexico the Philippines and Wales just to name a few. Carl was a founding Board Member of Answers in Genesis for 10 years and served there for over 15 years before stepping out in faith to become President and Founder of Reasons for Hope. Though Carl has played many roles in his life including air-traffic controller at O’Hare International Airport and son of a professional wrestler, his most cherished accomplishment is his marriage to his wife Masami for over 28 years and his role as father to his daughter Alisa and his son Carl, Jr., as well as grandfather to his grandson Trey.
