Luke Harper, Groups & Connections Pastor


Family: Elizabeth (wife), Hallie (daughter), Andrew (son)

How did God lead you to the ministry? God had called me to the ministry two previous times and, in disobedience, I made the choice to continue seeking a career in business and finance. Up until this time of surrender I had a history of career discontentment and spent years wavering with my career direction. It was while working as a volunteer youth pastor at my church in my late 20’s that I began to understand my discontentment was a consequence of being outside God’s will and my true calling in life was to serve His church vocationally. I have served Bartlett Baptist since 2013.
