Luke Johnson (Volunteer Staff)
Luke is a native of Charlotte (though he can't claim to actually being born here). He went to Myers Park High School and graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. After teaching high school and working for Wachovia, he felt the Lord leading him into cross-cultural ministry. He currently works for SIM which is a international mission organization. He specifically works in the recruitment department. Luke and Tyler have been friends for several years. In fact, back in 2005, Tyler was the very first person Luke met when he started attending Uptown Church. Luke has since moved to Cross Park Chuch, a church plant of Uptown Church. If Luke could do any one thing in the world, it would probably be to don a backpack and go out in the woods. He also likes playing stringed instruments from Bolivia.
