My name is Brent Luebcke. My wife, Caitlin, and I have been members of Christ Church Cathedral since 2017. While I initially began attending services at the encouragement of my now-wife, Christ Church Cathedral has become my spiritual home. I completed the Catechumenate in 2018. My wife and I were married in the Cathedral in July of 2019. Up to this point, my time and energy has been spent furthering my education and building my professional identity. It has become increasingly important for me to shift focus toward serving my community, and specifically this church, that has come to mean so much to myself and my family.
As a psychologist, I try to provide a compassionate presence to others, with a focus on improving well-being of the whole person. One of things that continues to connect me to Christ Church Cathedral is this community’s focus on making an effort to truly acknowledge and value all; not asking individuals to fit a mold of “who” the church should be for, but finding ways for the church to meet each person where they are and partnering with them to be Christ’s hands in our world.
I have not yet had the opportunity to serve in leadership roles within the church; however, if given the opportunity to serve as a member of the Vestry, I believe that my energetic personality, openness to new experiences, financial stewardship, and passion for expanding outreach to our downtown Indianapolis neighbors are all gifts that can be used to further the mission of God and this cathedral.
