Karissa Darius

Camping Ministries Assistant



Karissa grew up in the Shippensburg area, and now lives in Waynesboro with her husband Brian.  She is a self proclaimed “proud local”!  Her involvement with the ministry started back in college when she volunteered at a Joy El retreat, and now joins the Camping Team as a staff member.  She brings a background in teaching children to this role, and has already used her skills and supplies to decorate the walls of her office.

In her free time, Karissa enjoys spending time with her cat Kimber. She can also be found decorating custom cakes that she designs for special occasions.

A verse that has impacted Karissa’s life is Job 36:15,  “But those who suffer he delivers in their suffering; he speaks to them in their affliction.”
