Luke McDonald was born and raised in Ottumwa, Iowa. After graduating from Indian Hills Community College in 2017, he moved to West Des Moines to start a career as a Computer Programmer for IMT Insurance.
Shortly after coming to West Des Moines, Luke started attending Ashworth Church and began volunteering for our Worship Team and Ashworth Youth. When the position to lead the youth ministry opened up, he was eager to step into that role.
Luke is passionate about seeing everyone encounter God in their own unique way, believing God has designed us all for close connection with Him. This passion began at an early age through his own youth ministry experience, and he hopes to pass this along to the youth he gets to spend time with on Wednesday nights.
