Rev. Dr. Luke Biggs
I was born in New Orleans and grew up in San Antonio, Texas where I spent most of my childhood years. I guess that explains my love for spicy food and football. I am married to Anne and we have two children, Matthew and Faith. We have 4 wonderful grandchildren, Leighton, Caitlynn, Kamryn, and Chloe.
I love barbeque of all kinds and spending time smoking good meats! I enjoy reading and doing some writing. I have been at Peace since 2014 and in ministry for over 35 years.
I grew up in Rapid City, SD. I am married to my lovely wife, Joan, and have two children, Isaac (married to Sarah) and Lydia. I enjoy doing and learning creative things like music and the arts, writing, and woodworking. I am an avid reader, love movies, and like spending time in the garage puttering and building something. I also love to sing and used to do it full-time in opera and musical theater.
I have been at Peace since 2007, starting as the Director of Youth Ministry and then transitioning to Associate Pastor in 2012. I have served in the church since 1995 in Kansas, Minnesota, and Nebraska.
