Who we are

Lukus & Liesl Counterman

Written by Lukus Counterman. Posted in The Leadership Team

Lukus began pastoral ministry shortly after his marriage to Liesl in 2000. They ministered together in Maryland and Texas before moving to Salt Lake in 2012. Lukus’ most recent pastoral experience involved shepherding a church for almost eight years in Wichita Falls, where he finished his DMin from Dallas Theological Seminary and also entered the Air Force as a Reserve Chaplain. These years prepared him in many ways for the ministry of church planting in Utah. The Countermans’ days are filled with learning to pursue Jesus in all they are called to do, whether parenting their four kids, working at the Air Force Base, participating in community life, counseling or giving the gospel. The joy they have is a gift from God and they love to share grace with all the people God puts into their lives!

Lukus loves books and Amazon.com loves Lukus; he may also never be out of the halls of learning as he teaches online seminary courses for Maranatha Baptist University, while continuing his own pursuit of a PHD in systematic theology from Southeastern. Liesl loves writing and music and may sometimes forget to do housework. The kids love swimming, longboarding, soccer, skiing, basketball, English, History, Music and art—you’ll have to get to know which kids like which pastime!

I try to make these verses a reality in my life...
Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 2 Corinthians 5:20-21
