Luke was born to missionaries in Jos, Nigeria and lived in several other countries growing up. He attended Calvin College in Grand Rapids, MI where Luke majored in English. Soon after Luke headed off to Lithuania and recruited students from the former Soviet Union for a Christian university.
Following Lithuania, Luke worked at an international school in China, before ending up back in Grand Rapids fundraising for an international NGO: World Renew. After seeing the impact of the tensions between faith and science within churches in North America and around the world, he enthusiastically joined BioLogos. Luke is an advocate of Christians faithfully and thoughtfully engaging in the world and where the opportunity exists, to lead.
