Becky grew up in Virginia Beach, VA where she met and married Craig. She’s had the opportunity of living in the north, east, south and west of the US with their  two daughters. Her background as a RN, volunteering in a medical clinic, facilitating courses at a women's shelter, serving as a Stephen Ministry Leader, and being a BSF group leader in Clemson are a few of the privileges God has used to teach Becky about ministering to others.

Luke is married to Sara Frances, and they have two children Hollis and Eden Rose. When he is not sermonizing or swinging his favorite thurible, you can find him pulling weeds in the yard or spending time with his family and occasionally cheering for the Clemson Tigers (except when they are playing his Florida State Siminoles!). Luke graduated from Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, MO. 

Luke is originally from Pensacola, Florida, but most recently lived in Charleston where he worked as an assistant at St. Michael's Church.

Sara Frances is a native of Greenville and is glad to be back in the upstate. She enjoys being a mom and going on play dates, being outdoors, and exercising.

They are grateful and excited to be in Clemson. They look forward to walking alongside the men and women of Christ the Redeemer, and seeing how God is at work in and through them.

Jenna has been involved with music in someway most of her life. Through college she learned guitar and piano, using them to write music and become involved in the churches worship team, where that passion continued to grow. She recently had the opportunity to intern with the band Alanna Story at Madison Park church, learning what a worship leader is and does. 

She longs to see people worship the Creator and praise His name. She wants to lead people into the presence of God, and help point to true worship.  

Jenna is originally from the Cincinnati area but has recently been living in Indianapolis. She loves to paint and do DIY projects, as well as laying in her hammock within nature with a book or good music.

Kathy (from California) met and married John (from South Carolina) 42 years ago in Philadelphia, PA.  They have four children and four grandchildren. Together they have been involved in pastoral ministry all their married life serving churches in Appalachia, university towns in Virginia and South Carolina, and in Camden Town, London. They moved to Greenville, S.C. in 2011 and John and Kathy helped form and lead a multi-racial group called “Our Beloved Community.” For five years they lived in a neighborhood that was primarily made up of single mothers and their children. There they formed friendships that deepened and challenged Kathy’s walk with Jesus.  Kathy was ordained as a deacon in the Anglican Church in North America in December 2016.  She loves praying with and for people. Kathy enjoys being outdoors, gardening, painting and most of all connecting people to Jesus.
