Zygmunt Karel

Zygmunt Karel has devoted his life to the careful teaching of the Bible and equipping others to do the same. During his more than 40 years of ministry, he pastored many churches, including a Polish-speaking fellowship in New York City. In 1990, he cofounded the first interdenominational theological seminary in Poland and served 15 years as its president.

In 2008, he was invited to start Insight for Living Poland. Believing that Chuck Swindoll’s clear and practical teaching is much needed in his country, Zygmunt has passionately led the ministry, translated and recorded messages in Polish, and connected with listeners from different walks of life.

Zygmunt has been married for more than 40 years. He and his wife, Maria, have five children and five grandchildren.
