Luke Kimery

Youth Minister


Luke may look young, but he's only a kid at heart. After graduating from Avon High School in Avon, IN, he sadly realized that becoming Spiderman wasn't a viable option.


Instead, he decided to go to Johnson University to pursue degrees in Bible and Youth Ministry and Preaching. He graduated in the Spring of 2021 and joined WCC as the full-time youth minister just a few weeks later!

Luke and his wife Nettie feel so blessed to be a part of Woodlawn's family, and can't wait for the day when they finally look their age.


Amber Hockman

Children's Minister


Amber Hockman grew up at Woodlawn when her parents, Ron and Martha Wheeler, placed their membership in 1977. After graduating from Johnson University in 2000 with her Master in Holistic Education, Amber worked 6 years in the Knox County School System with the Talented and Gifted Program.


In 2006, she was able to leave her job in education after her husband, Chris, began a different job in the wonderful world of accounting. She was thankful to stay at home with their three children, Grace, Faith, and Garrett, where she eventually began homeschooling them. During this time, Amber also babysat several different children in her home.


In 2014, Amber became the Children's Minister at Woodlawn. She still has a lifelong dream of being Wonder Woman one day, but for now she is thankful for the adventure God is daily leading her and her family on!
