St. Luke is a growing suburban congregation on the northeast side of Columbus with a full-range of ministries in mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ. Our vision is to be a sanctuary where God's love is learned, lived and unleashed. We have five full-time leaders serving on our employed ministry team. We value personal growth, evangelism, and loyalty as we have fun serving together. As ministry leaders we provide opportunities and guidance for people to take next steps along the discipleship path of learning God's love in worship, living God's love in life groups, and unleashing God's love when we serve, invite and give to meet the hopes and hurts of others.
