Luke Swanson


Title: Missionary

Chapter: Arizona State University


Luke grew up in Wadsworth, Ohio and then graduated from The University of Cincinnati with a degree in Biomedical Engineering. Luke had little intention of engaging with his faith in college and was quickly consumed with the accolades and achievement amidst a busy schedule.

However, God was in steady pursuit of His heart. He began to grab hold through the powerful witness of other men. As a freshman, Luke had senior men begin to reach out to Him and invest heavily in his life. They sought to love him in the way that Christ did. Through the powerful witness of these men, Luke began to realize the power contained in his sonship.

In his third year, Luke attended SNE ’17, where he encountered the Lord personally for the first time. Here, God spoke powerfully into Luke’s life and gave him a deep conviction and heart for missionary work. He spent the rest of his college career striving to be on mission, eventually deciding to serve full-time with SPO.

Luke loves to backpack, slackline, and play most sports. He is also wholeheartedly convinced that the world revolves around Cleveland.
