Luke Long was called to serve as the Children’s Pastor in May of 2021. He and his wife Ashley have two dogs and would love to tell you about their latest adventure!
Luke graduated from James Madison University in 2015 with a BA in Political Science and from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in 2019 with a Master of Divinity in Biblical Counseling. While his call to Ministry was being refined, Luke served in a variety of contexts while learning at Southeastern. From student intern at Calvary Baptist Church in Winston Salem, to bi-vocational ministry at Lea Bethel Baptist Church in Prospect Hill, to full time student and children’s pastor at First Baptist Church in Walnut Cove.
Luke is passionate about serving the local church and being a resource for families. Growing up as a pastor’s kid, he saw how significantly the church can impact the lives of families. Luke wants to do everything he can to lead families into a pattern of discipleship, a culture of worship, and a life of joy all that God has in store for them!
When not in his office (or more likely in a classroom with various games, crafts, or costumes) you can probably find him and Ashley with their dogs, hiking and camping, or reading, but in all things with a coffee mug in hand!
