He considers being a minister to be the best job in the world because it deals with the most important part of people’s lives. He is married to Christina and they have three children.

Luke Forty

Associate Minister

Luke had the joy of growing up in a Christian home and can’t remember a time when he didn’t know Jesus as his saviour and king. He spent six years working in the city but left to follow his real passion – helping people know God and his plan for the universe better. Luke is married to Ruth and they have the joy of bringing up two young children.
