  • RON SINCLAIR

    DIRECTOR OF MUSIC + CREATIVE ARTS

    I've dedicated the last two decades of my life to leading worship at St. Luke's. Our dynamic musical ensembles enrich my life and add joy to the life of our congregation.

  • PAT MCKIM

    DIRECTOR OF CHILDREN'S MINISTRY

    What a blessing it is to serve as St. Luke’s Director of Children’s Ministry! I believe God’s call in my life is to not only reach children but to walk alongside their families as we together help them to claim the scripture from Jeremiah. “Before I shaped you in the womb, I knew all about you. Before you saw the light of day, I had holy plans for you. A prophet to the nations-that’s what I had in mind for you” Jeremiah 1:5 The Message Translation. Every child in order to know Jesus needs to know that they are loved and “holy plans” are waiting for them as they grow!  My passion is to engage families in learning how to live out those plans through home, school, work and everywhere they go.

  • ANDREW WOODS

    DIRECTOR OF YOUTH + COLLEGE-AGED ADULTS

    I love the informal title “champion for youth” because I’ve dedicated my life to sharing the love of God with youth and young adults I meet everywhere. I believe that every youth deserves to be loved and valued, no matter what. Every young person I get to interact with should walk away knowing that they are a child of God and loved by this church. I’m an idea-man and a wild dreamer so I look forward to dreaming with you about how God is calling our community into the future!
