Secretary & Youth Director

Lela Ijames
Hey there! I am serving as secretary and youth director for St. Luke's. I am a city planner by training but enjoying my time serving secretary and youth director. Although I am a Rowan County native, I am living in Davie County with my husband, Josh, and three kids, Jaedyn, Jason, and Abraham. If you happen to stop in the church office, you will likely get to meet Abraham who is 1 year old. In my spare time, I enjoy running, gardening, and graphic design. God has truly blessed my life so much and I am so thankful to be surrounded by our church family here at St. Luke's.
