Luke grew up in a Christian home in rural Missouri but never really understood God's love for him until he experienced it for himself at a summer camp in 1998. It was after that that he felt led to be in ministry and since then God has grown his passion to see people walk in the reality of their true identity in Christ. Luke and his wife Ali have two teenage kids, Jackson and Alaina, and they all love to travel and eat Indian food. Luke received his undergraduate degree at Vennard Bible College, and also holds an MATS with an emphasis in Church Revitalization from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Luke also holds a certificate from the Soul Care Institute and is trained in trauma informed counseling.
