After making the long and arduous journey from Middle Earth (New Zealand) in January 2014, Luke started his study at Moore Theological College and joined St Augustine’s. Having known about Jesus from a young age, Luke came over here to train as a pastor so he can know him better and teach others about him. Long term he’d like to return to New Zealand but while he is here he intends to spend as much time as he can with friends and in the bush, preferably both at the same time.
