St. Luke’s Announces New Youth Pastor

St. Luke’s Anglican Church announced its new youth pastor, Jim Gray. Gray will oversee approximately 12-16 youth, ages 13-18 from grades six to 12 in his growing youth ministry.

As a youth, Gray was called into the ministry after attending a Christian high school in Massachusetts. Soon after high school, he began exploring seminaries and graduated from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena with a master’s in Divinity. He worked as a youth pastor at a congregational church and also served as a youth pastor at a Presbyterian Church in Diamond Bar where he met his wife Claudia.

They became members of St. Luke’s in February 2011 following a church plant Gray led in Pasadena.

Interestingly, Gray’s vision for St. Luke’s youth not only involves the youth, but also their parents. For now, he plans to spend a lot of quality time listening to both the youth and their parents to glean a fuller understanding of their collective needs and concerns.

“My passion is to see families equipped to do ministry and mission together; to see parents as the primary spiritual caretakers for their children, equipping them to make right choices and to help others do the same,” he said.

St. Luke’s welcomes the community to attend its weekly Sunday worship services. A traditional 8 a.m. service is followed by a 10:15 a.m. contemporary family worship service. Services are held at the Seventh Day Adventist Church Chapel, 300 Vallejo Dr., Glendale.

St. Luke’s also invites the community to attend its monthly fourth Friday Healing Services on the fourth Friday of the month at 7 p.m. at its church offices, 3901 Foothill Blvd., 2nd Floor, La Crescenta.
