Interim Student Ministries Coordinator
We’re excited to introduce our Interim Student Ministries Coordinator, Cody Luttman. If you don’t yet know him, here’s a little snippet from his life!
Cody’s journey towards faith in Christ began at a young age. He had a knowledge of Christ and was baptized at 10 years old but says he didn’t fully know what he was doing. Circumstances in his life later proved to be opportunities for God to draw him closer to Himself. It wasn’t until he listened to a radio ministry broadcast that the knowledge of the gospel made its way to his heart and changed his life! His old loves passed away and new loves were made alive. He still recalls how the Holy Spirit created in him a deep desire to serve God and His people. His life had dramatically changed; he hated sin and wanted to live a life that would exalt Jesus Christ.
In 2003 Cody married Ashley, his “childhood sweetheart,” and together they have two beautiful children: Elli—age 6, and Oliver—age 3. Meeting at the young age of 14, Cody says, “I find it remarkable that God allowed me to find my wife at such a young age, but I do know the path I was heading down was not good. God knew that bringing a beautiful, blonde-haired, blue-eyed girl into my life would be the kick I needed to change directions.”
Graduating from Fresno State with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, he soon began working for a petroleum service company where he is employed today.
Cody’s passion is for youth, for the people on the street, or whoever God leads him to speak to. He wants the lost to see their wretchedness before a holy God and that only through Jesus can they be saved.
Cody closed with these thoughts, “I know that my life is but a vapor, and I pray that the glory of God, in the face of Jesus Christ, will shine bright in my momentary vapor! God is doing a good work in my life and is breaking me in many ways, continuing to make me more like His Son. I pray that God will keep it up as He shows me who He is, so that I may continue to fall on my knees and worship the only One who is WORTHY!”
Special Note: We are presently actively seeking an energetic Associate Pastor of Student Ministries, who loves working with youth and shares our vision to passionately reach the youth of our community with the transforming love of Jesus Christ. Cody is a humble, servant leader who looks forward to supporting our new youth pastor in any way he can.
