Pastor Luke Chen was born in Taiwan but grew up in a predominately German neighborhood of Chicago (Perhaps that’s why he took high school German). He originally wanted to be a doctor and graduated from Northwestern University with a bachelor degree in biochemistry-molecular biology. (This explains his occasional nerdiness.) God, however, had other plans for him and called him into the pastoral ministry. God also gave him a wonderful wife, Ruth, who got him organized and introduced him to Jamaican ways of life.
After seminary God took Luke and Ruth to Toronto, Los Angeles, and San Diego (Yay, no more Midwest winters!) mainly to pastor in Chinese American churches, until 2009 (He doesn’t speak much Chinese). In 2009 he and Ruth started GC2 Church with a group of around 30 amazing brothers and sisters in Christ. In addition to his love for the Lord and ministry, Pastor Luke loves his wife, his three grown daughters, and he would love a dog and a cat, if he had them. He also loves to try out new restaurants! In his spare time, he has remodeled his house, re-landscaped his yard, taken strenuous vacations, flown his drone for ministry and fun, played around with his multiple cameras, and taken long drives to nowhere.
