Meet our Team


We are excited to introduce you to our Staff! We would love for you to come and say "Hi" in person on Sunday! See you there!

Luke Williams | Lead Pastor

I'm in ministry because I believe Jesus is the hope of the world and the church is the vehicle God uses to grow His Kingdom. I love seeing people come to know Christ and continually grow in Him. I passionately believe Officer should be a better place because Follow exists!

Luke Williams is our Lead Pastor at Follow Baptist Church. He is married to the beautiful Kim and have four wonderful children - Adele, Tayla, Anika and Lenny. Luke is a passionate leader and has a heart for Jesus, blessing the community and seeing people transformed by the power of the Gospel. Luke is a qualified carpenter and worked in the industry for a decade before taking up the call into Church ministry. He has previously worked on staff at Bayside Church as a Young Adult Pastor and at Beaconsfield Baptist where he was in an Associate Pastor Role. In July 2015, Luke, Kim and a dedicated small group of leaders planted Follow.
