Our Pastor


St. Luke is currently served by the Reverend Doctor Robert L. Harrell, III. Pastor Robb came to St. Luke in November 2007 from Christ the King Lutheran in Cumming, GA.

Pastor Robb is a native of Covington, Louisiana. He is a graduate of the University of Florida, where he received a Bachelor of Arts in History with High Honors. After graduation he remained for an additional year of post-baccalaureate study in religion and society through the University’s Department of Religion.  He relocated to Atlanta where he completed a Master of Divinity from the Candler School of Theology at Emory University. His Lutheran ordination requirements were fulfilled through additional study and internship at the Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary. Pastor Robb holds a Doctor of Ministry degree with a concentration in Christian Spirituality from Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, GA. His doctoral project was an exploration of how personality type and prayer intersect in the spiritual and pastoral direction process.

Pastor Robb is married to Dr. Ezel Harrell, a career educator who currently teaches in a local Christian school. The couple have three children: Asheton, Theodora and Matthew.
