Our Staff

Rev. Scott Swix
“Pastor Scott” has a passion for faith formation, including education and spiritual growth and loves working with youth, preaching, teaching, coaching and equipping others for ministry. Pastor Scott attended Trinity Lutheran Seminary (Columbus, OH) and served as pastor in Michigan before returning to the south and serve in North Carolina.  Pastor Scott has served as parish pastor, developer/redeveloper, and as an interim pastor.  
Prior to being called to ordained ministry Pastor Scott enjoyed a career in the multimedia computer industry (with IBM, Kaleida Labs and ATT/BellSouth), and considers that time a wonderful adventure and a valuable preparation for the ministry.
Pastor Scott thanks God for the blessing of his wife, Kim (also a computer software developer), and their two adult sons Zachary and Joshua.

Pastor Scott answered the call and began serving at St Luke's in August, 2016
