Pastor of Student Ministries

Pastor of Student Ministries:  Rev. Luke Brakefield filled the position of Pastor of Student Ministries on February 22. 2016. Luke is a graduate of Appalachian State University where he earned a Business Education degree, and is currently pursuing his MDIV at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC. He has been in ministry for 6 years and has served as an Associate Pastor of Worship and Youth.

Luke is married to Katie, an interior designer, and they have a 3 year old daughter named Hattie who loves to sing, dance, and currently aspires to be a cheerleader (while dad prays for Divine intervention). They really enjoy spending time with one another and taking day trips whenever possible.

Luke has many interests such as anything involving athletic competition, fishing, shooting, and being outdoors in general. He is a huge Tar Heel fan and enjoys live sporting events and concerts. March is his favorite time of year because spring is imminent, daylight savings time kicks in, and March Madness takes over.

“I love to worship the Lord and share my passion for the love of Jesus that trumps all other things in life. My very favorite things to do in life are talk to God, read and learn all I can about Him, sing and play music that glorifies Him, and teach others about how awesome He is!”
