My name is Dave Cadieux.
I have been a follower of Jesus Christ since June 7, 1991 and have been privileged to serve His Body in many places and in many capacities. This ministry has been the greatest expression of that service since 1998 (when I started Charisma Graphics which grew into Karpos Ministries by 2002).
The name “karpos” comes from a greek word (καρπός) (used for example in John 15:16 for fruit. “You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit,…”) (karpos means the resulting fruit of intentional labor or effort).
To me, Karpos means my faith starts with my being, but must result in “doing” if my faith will be justied by my works (as in James 2:18-26)
Graphic and web design, then worship leading, then a coffee house, which brought in speaking and teaching (men’s discipleship and couples study), AV training, admin and tech support. It just kept growing as God showed me ways to help where needed. God even added a “shofar evangelism” ministry in the middle as a reward for passing a test of trust and obedience (when His instructions made no sense whatsoever LOL) which has become Watchmen.
31 years of printing, design, and customer service and sales experience,
combined with 27 years of serving the Body of Christ in many areas has produced quantifiable fruit (καρπoς).
Karpos Ministries offers these varied supports to the Body of Christ:
- Graphic Design
- Web Design
- Print Consultant
- Technical Support
- Worship Leading
- Bible Study & Small Group Facilitation, & Teaching
- Shofar Sounding and Teaching
- Training (in all the above)
