Luke Samuelson

Lead pastor

Luke Samuelson serves as the Lead Pastor of Kingwood Bible Church. He was called to KBC in January 2018 after having served at other churches as a Connections Pastor and Campus Pastor. Luke has been married to his wife, Stephanie, for almost eight years. They have two sons, Noah (4) and Hudson (2).


Luke was raised in a non-Christian home, but after a series of events in his life, he began a personal relationship with Christ at age 17. He went on to get his Bachelor's Degree at Texas A&M University in Economics. While studying abroad and plugging into local mission work there he felt called into full time ministry.


He went on to finish his undergraduate degree and then attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary for his Master's of Divinity. During his time in seminary he was able to serve in his local church in multiple capacities from youth work to local outreach. It is there that he met Stephanie, who had been raised as a missionary kid in El Salvador, and at the time was working as a nurse.


Luke and Stephanie look forward to many years at KBC, raising their family, serving the community, and proclaiming the Gospel of God's truth in Kingwood and beyond.
