Karina Judy

Publications and Communications Manager


I grew up in Tehachapi, as used to the blue skies and breezes as one of the oaks that grow all around. I was raised going to church, and throughout my life, my parents set a great example of following Jesus in their faithfulness, dedication, and sacrificial love, for which I am so grateful! I accepted Christ as a young child, but wasn’t fully aware of the depth of His mercy, grace, and love until I was a teenager. Since then, He has been growing me closer to Him day by day, a journey which has been profoundly impacted both by people from my home church, CLA and from COBC, who teach, uplift, challenge, and encourage me in all parts of life.

My family and I have attended Christian Life Assembly all my life, and during normal times I serve as a greeter/guest services host and work in the nursery there (how I miss all those beautiful little ones!). For the last two years I have worked at COBC as the Publications and Communications Manager, and I have enjoyed it greatly, it’s like a second church home. For the last few years I have been privileged to lead a CLA lifegroup as well as attending a COBC Growth Group, and it has been such a blessing to get to know and forge friendships with the people in both groups.  I am so glad to be able to work at COBC and get to see the rhythms and workings of another church and see how God is working in different ways and places through different churches in our community.

Fun Facts:

  • I love music! I can get into pretty much any kind of music, but my favorite is swing-era jazz.
  • The beach is my favorite place on a day off; I enjoy beach sports like volleyball, spikeball, and Frisbee, but most of the time I’d rather spend my beach day reading and relaxing.
