Meet Luke Backus - Youth Pastor

The bearded sports fanatic from North Carolina has a heart for youth. His desire to serve stems from uncovering hard truths about his family and biological father when he was a teen. Thankfully, a local pastor took Luke under his wing sharing the unconditional love of our Father in heaven.

After stops in Iowa to attend Emmaus Bible College and Boston, Luke returned to North Carolina in 2010. He met his wife, Amber, that same year and they married in July of 2011. After a brief stay in New England, Luke and his wife felt called to the Portland area. Upon moving here in 2014 they immediately learned they were pregnant with their sweet Caroline. Luke enjoys rooting for the Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins and Patriots!
