Luke is a full-time Youth and Worship Pastor at the Berlin Brethren Church and his wife, Amanda, works alongside him as a volunteer youth worker and full-time shenanigan-mediator. They have been serving in Berlin since 2010. They have two children, Isaac and Hadassah, who love life, Transformers, and tea parties.
Luke is a lifelong Pittsburgh Pirates fan, outdoorsman, avid board game junkie, and movie critic. Over the years, he has become enamored with the idea of eating strictly local as a sustainable way of living. Most of all, Luke’s passion is Jesus Centered Youth ministry, which explores ways to read the entire Bible through the lens of the person and work of Jesus. The Bible is not a loose connection of unrelated stories. Everything either prepares the way for Jesus or explains how to process and live in light of what he did on the cross.
