St.James   - Durham, NC
Pastor & First Lady Brooks
Overseer Luther K. Brooks,
Senior Pastor
Luther K. Brooks, a man of action, boldly promoting the holistic approach of spreading the "Word of Truth".  He has taken this "Word" to the streets by initiating outreach ministries to touch those who are seeking direction and comfort.
He not only shepherds those whose names  appear on our church role, but makes a connection with everyone he meets.  God has equipped him with a true evangelistic spirit, allowing him to go out into the hedges and highways compelling men & women to come to Christ.
He has served as Senior Pastor of Saint James Baptist Church for over 23 years.  Beyond this position, he has served as CEO of Visions of Tomorrow Community Development Corporation, president of the Walltown Neighborhood Ministries, Moderator of the New Home and Durham Missionary Baptist Association and held positions on numerous boards and committees.  He also holds the office of District Overseer of the Central District for the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship International of North Carolina. 
Overseer Brooks has often partnered with local entities like Duke Community Affairs, Self-Help Credit Union, Northgate Associates, Durham & Orange County Junior League, First Citizen's Bank and The United Way, who have all sought to improve the lives of those residing in the Walltown community and surrounding area.Mentoring young pastors and ministers has also become a choice pursuit of Pastor Brooks. 
He feels that if he can help any "Man or Woman of God" avoid the many snares and traps that Satan conjures up for those who have been called by God, he is compelled to do so.  He is ready and willing to share the wisdom & knowledge he has gained from his many years of leadership.
He's a native born North Carolinian, who resides with his wife, Kimberly in Hillsborough, NC. They have three adult children, Sparkle, Ryan and Meghan and one grandson, Kendrell.  As a third generation preacher,  he knows that Jesus Christ is his hope and is serious about feeding the flock of God. 
Overseer Brooks' greatest desire is to preach the authentic Gospel of Jesus Christ.
