Luke Trouten joined the staff in 2006 as Northwood’s first youth pastor. He loves when teenagers encounter Jesus, and the way it brings adventure into life. He and his wife Katie enjoy anything that gets them outside, but especially backpacking at National Parks or canoeing in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. He also biked from coast to coast in 2015. Luke writes for various magazines and websites, does web and graphic design, and always wants to eat Chinese food.
