Raoul and Karen answered the call of God and have been serving in ministry since 2002. They established a ministry to bring relief to those in need and assist those in the Caribbean who need a helping hand, and to teach, train and develop leaders, all focused on gospel impact and living the Great Commission.
After leaving highly successful careers, (Raoul was a senior executive in the cruise line industry in Florida. Karen was the Deputy Director of News and the Television and Radio News Anchor in the Bahamas)they used their corporate skills and professional influences to properly manage a ministry that is based in Scripture, built on character, and operated with integrity.
Raoul and Karen, both having personal encounters with God, committed their lives to the mission and purpose of reaching souls for Christ, planting and strengthening churches. Over the years they have partnered with major organizations in the United States and developed ministry throughout the Caribbean.
The couple live in the Bahamas, an archipelagic nation, with a population of approximately 300,000. Residents on many of the islands face daily struggles, such as economic hardship, natural disasters and the usual setbacks of a third world nation.
Raoul and Karen are Converge missionaries and lead the Caribbean Initiative in developing ministry and training and empowering leaders throughout the region.
They have taken a new and exciting approach to changing the face of nations by changing the hearts of the people. (Luke 1:17) “He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”
The Armbristers use many programs in their ministry to minister to the spiritual, social and physical needs of the people they serve.
