LUKE PENNY - ASSOCIATE MINISTER
I was born and raised in the Dallas area, most of that time being in McKinney, TX. Growing up, I never knew I was in need of a savior because I assumed I could save myself by being a good enough person. It wasn’t until the end of high school when the Lord began to soften my heart to the gospel. He used a pretty girl (now my wife) to model what a genuine love for God looked like. During this time I realized that there was nothing I could do to earn a right relationship with God, but rather it was only possible by His grace and compassion.
I am a graduate of Dallas Baptist University and prior to Eastside I served on staff at The Village Church. In early 2018 I married my high school sweetheart, Kendall. Kendall is an elementary school teacher and we currently live in East Dallas. We love being apart of all that the Lord is doing in this community and have a deep love for the people of Eastside.
My hope for Eastside is that we would be a people on mission who beautifully reflect the love of Jesus Christ to all people.
