Hello, my name is Luke! I have been serving as the Youth Pastor since January of 2022. I am excited to help lead and equip families for the advancement of the gospel! Some of my favorite things are cheesy dad jokes, theology, good questions, and cars. I especially love my family and spending time with them! I am married to my beautiful wife of almost 5 years, and we have two incredible little boys, Isaac and Isaiah. I look forward to what God has in store here at WDBC!

- Marlee CribbWorship Leader
Hi, my name is Marlee! I’m the Worship Leader for Wise Drive Baptist (which you knew, since it says it above, whoops). I’ve been leading the music with them since June of 2021, and have adored it here. I look forward to what God has planned for this ministry and am so grateful that I’ve gotten the opportunity to worship with all of these amazing people!
PS: I love music (repetitive I know), writing, and spending time with my family and friends.
Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk. (Hope to see you on Sunday to worship with us!!!)
