Brian Luse | Shauna Luse
In 2007, the Luse family began their official journey into the world of being “full time missionaries.” They arrived in Glasgow, Scotland in January 2008 serving with other individuals from their sending organization, Church Resource Ministries (CRM), to help establish a church plant known as Re:Hope (pronounced “Regarding Hope”). This church, begun by Brian and Kellie Ingraham, another Christ’s Church supported missionary family, began in 2003-04. However, within six months of arriving, God moved in an amazing way with the Luse family, giving Brian the pastoral opportunity to revitalize (re-plant) an established 106 year old church called Renfrew Baptist Church. This church is about a 15 minute drive from Re:Hope (near the Glasgow airport). At present, they average around 63 adults in attendance; 12-18 elementary age kids; 6-10 toddlers and nursery kids. In their home, Shauna has a weekly Bible study with 18-24 women. Along with his role as pastor, Brian is also mentoring another young Scottish man who will one day plant or re-plant a church of his own.
Brian served for seven years as Children’s Pastor at Rolling Hills Community Church near Wilsonville, Oregon. He was also involved as an evangelist in “Next Generation Alliance,” a Luis Palau organization. Brian has preached the gospel in India, Africa, Madagascar,and now in Scotland.
Shauna worked successfully for many years in the corporate world. In her many roles as a pastor’s wife, she is not only a busy “mum,” but works in ministry with the women of the church and enjoys quilting.
The Luses have eight children:
Charlotte (2001) | Raiden (2004) | Connie (2006) | Caileen (2008) | Taren (2009) | Dylan (2011) | Greyson (2014) | Celia (2018)
They write: “We are so incredibly thankful that Christ’s Church has joined us in this missionary journey. With your support in prayer, we are among those mentioned in Hebrews 10:39, “But we are not of those who shrink back to destruction, but of those who have faith to the preserving of the soul.” Thank you for standing with us and with the families of Glasgow.”
