Luke Owens was raised here in Florida and spent a majority of his childhood in the church admiring the calling God gave to his grandfather. In 2010, after serving in the United States Army, Luke earned his Bachelor’s degree in Business Information Systems and Information Technology and worked for a major computer manufacturer. It was during this time in Luke’s life where he received his calling into ministry. In 2012, Luke received God’s calling to reach and counsel youth and became the Student Discipleship Pastor. Luke received his Master’s in Christian Ministries and Discipleship from Liberty University in 2015.
After Luke’s father was called to heaven, God called him to a church in the Bonifay area in 2015 to be the Youth Pastor. Soon after moving to the area, Luke met his beautiful and supportive wife Melissa, and are raising two young men. God called Luke to Teen Challenge in 2017 to be a biblical counselor. Luke’s heart desire is to, “counsel teenagers in the ways of the Lord, teach them God’s purpose for their lives, so that God may bless and use them in ways they never thought possible.”
