Born on April 18th, 1928, a native of Canada, as Luke Reginald Summers, Bishop Summers began his ministerial journey attending the Church of God Bible School in his home country. Later, he taught at the school one year and pastored one year before going as a missionary to the Virgin Islands in 1949. Summers went on to serve as missionary/youth director in Barbados, Nevis, St. Kitts, Dominican Republic, St. Martins, St. Lucia, Guyana, and Trinidad. He was then appointed as overseer of Dominica and Jamaica/Turks Islands. In 1970, World Missions appointed Luke as superintendent of the West Indies, a position he held until 1994. He served alongside other prominent Church of God World Mission leaders such as Reverend Lovell Cary, Reverend Stephen Mohammed, and Reverend J. Herbert Walker. Before his retirement, he was also coordinator of special events in the Caribbean. Luke Reginald Summers passed away Sunday, November 18, 2018, at his home on Sand Mountain, Alabama at age 90.
