Luke Denton

Online Campus Pastor

Pastor Luke Denton has a burden to reach people through the digital space. His vision is to carry the heart of Gateway Church beyond its physical walls. Luke’s desire is to equip and encourage people through Gateway Gatherings and a thriving Online Community while they gather to watch the weekend service from anywhere!

Born and raised in a small town in Georgia, Luke grew up with a passion for music and a dream to pursue a music career. Years later while on tour in California, Luke realized the fame he was chasing was not what God wanted. He surrendered his heart to Jesus and moved back to the South near his family.

In 2008, Luke started serving at City Hope Church. While there, he saw it grow from a single campus to five campuses reaching much of the Gulf Coast. God later called Luke to Gateway Church Scottsdale, and in 2018, Luke accepted a position at Gateway in Southlake.

In 2020, when the world shut down and church services went completely virtual, Gateway’s reach grew to more than 100,000 people attending each week all over the world. As the church keeps growing, Pastor Luke continues to serve the online community and dream of new ways to advance Gateway’s vision.

Luke and his wife, Julie, have been married since 2008, and they have two kids, Anna Cate and Adler.
