Karl & Maria Dreher

Elder/Worship Leader

Karl is a Philly kid who loves the Lord and his family.  He and his wife Maria have been married for 20 years and have three children, Diella (18), Micah (15) and Raine (11).  Together they have enjoyed leading worship and young adult groups for over two decades. Karl & Maria want to empower people of all ages to cultivate extraordinary relationships with God and with others. They desire to see people passionately pursue their God-given destinies to transform the world around them while living in community,  and power because they are loved by God. Karl loves music, movies and sports. (No particular order)

Ted & Karen Lewis


Ted is a lifelong resident of Philly (and the near suburbs).  He is extremely happily married to Karen and has 2 grown children, Ryan and Kirsten (both living in Phila.).  Ted graduated from Messiah College in 1976 with a degree in English.  He is currently employed as a social worker.  He joined Living Word in 1971 (a few months after getting saved) and became an Elder in 1980.  Ted profoundly enjoys God’s creation (especially birds, wildlife, trees, and mountains).  He is not comfortable with contemporary society’s fixation on electronic devices and things that are artificial and synthetic.  He has been saying for years that the thing he loves the most about LWC is the high caliber of people the Lord consistently brings to us to be part of our fellowship.
