Jeff Luedtke – Lead Pastor

Jeff is a 23-year marriage veteran to Amy, and together they love the experience of two teenagers, Bryce & Jordan. Jeff enjoys golf, his motorcycle, and pie.

Jeff’s desire for the church is “disciples making disciples.” He sees the need for a common purpose as a body of believers to engage the community with the love of Christ. He works hard to make this a reality by teaching Biblical truth and encouraging our consistent outreach efforts in our community.
