Pastor Luce joined the SCA faculty to teach Senior Apologetics in 2016. Apologetics has been a passion for Pastor Luce since encountering many divergent faiths growing up as a Navy kid traveling the globe. He originally felt a call to medical missions and pursued a degree in Pre-Med Microbiology at Cal Poly-Pomona before transferring to Vanguard University where he earned a degree in Religion with an emphasis in Bible studies.

His passion to influence students during their most crucial decision-making years (the mate, mission & master years) led him into 26 years of youth ministry where he served churches in San Diego, Los Angeles, St. Paul MN, and here in Kansas City at Sheffield Family Life Center. When he felt God leading him to be a lead pastor, he took a position as the Executive Pastor at Crown Pointe Church, where he has served since 2015.

"I am honored to serve at SCA and especially to teach apologetics. By the time students come to my class, they will have a great wealth of Bible knowledge that they will be challenged to fit into a working worldview that will help them understand, defend, and share their faith with a world that desperately needs to know the peace, freedom, and truth found only in Christ."

Pastor Dennis has been married to his wife Necole since 1998 and they have three wonderful children.
