Kari Pavlovsky

My name is Kari Pavlovsky I am originally from Long Island, New York. I met my husband Rick there while he was pastoring the church I attended. We continued to pastor the church for about twenty years. I served as the Sunday School Director and Youth Leader there for about twelve years. I have always had a heart for children and began raising awareness about human trafficking when I got involved with Love 146 about seven years ago. Four years ago we left New York and moved to Texas to work with John Paul Jackson at Streams Ministries where I served as the Prayer and Partners Director. Though we loved being there we felt led to move back to Southern California where my husband was originally from. Shortly after moving to Yorba Linda in September, I became involved volunteering with the Orange County Human Trafficking Task force, as well as the Global Center for Women and Justice.
