Shrock, Jason & Karen

Serving the Lord with Teen Missions in South Africa


Meet the Shrocks

Jason grew up in Albion, Indiana, but has called Huntington, IN home for 16 years. He met his future wife while a student at Huntington University and was married shortly after graduation. He earned a degree in Recreation Management and has worked as a director of a retreat bus youth ministry, as well as spending 14 years working in a juvenile correctional facility. As a church youth leader and Sunday school teacher, his desire has been to teach youth about their role in world evangelism.

Karen is also an Indiana native and Huntington University graduate, where she also majored in Recreation Management. She has worked a variety of jobs including camp director, special needs preschool teacher, naturalist, foster care and home daycare provider. She enjoys bird watching, guitar, and reading. Her heart in ministry is discipling children and reaching out to AIDS Orphans and Muslims.

The Shrocks have two grown children. Jennifer is a graduate of Grace College. She lives in Argentina and is a teacher at Buenos Aires International Christian Academy, a school for third culture kids. Brent lives in Indiana. He graduated from the University of Northwestern Ohio with a degree in High-Performance Auto Mechanics; he hopes to build and race cars. He currently works for Crown Fork Lift Trucks.

Their two youngest are serving with them at TMI. Joy is in second grade and loves gymnastics and music. Jolie is in kindergarten and enjoys dance and drama.

The Shrocks are currently serving as base coordinators at the Teen Missions base in South Africa.  They enjoy their work and are looking forward to seeing God do mighty works in South Africa.
