Luke Wilson is a pastor’s kid from Wisconsin. He accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior at his bedside when he was five years old. At the age of 16, Luke became passionate about leading worship, and learned to sing and play the guitar. He led his Youth Group in worship until graduation. Luke felt called into youth ministry after a powerful youth camp speaker challenged campers to live a life like John the Baptist who declared that “Jesus must increase, and I must decrease”. Luke was mentored and taught in his Biblical foundation by great adult servant leaders in the youth group. He decided to go to Kingswood University, a Christian School in New Brunswick, Canada, with a youth ministry major. In university, He met the beautiful Emily LaPorte, who displayed a drive for prayer and outreach ministries. Something very special happened in Emily’s hometown August 22, 2014. After two years of getting to know each other, Emily and Luke got married in a revival tabernacle at a Wesleyan Campground in Mooers, NY. Luke interned at Christ Wesleyan Church in the Spring of 2015 to finish his Bachelor’s Degree in youth ministry. After Luke graduated, he was offered a two-year residency position at Christ Wesleyan Church working with the youth group and Sunday School. After one year of residency, Luke was offered a full time job at New Hope Wesleyan Church as their Youth Pastor, where he currently serves following the call that God has placed on his life.
