Lucas was born and raised in a Christian family from Louisville, KY. He professed his faith in Jesus and was baptized at the age of nine. As he grew up, he had many experiences that challenged his faith and caused a renewal of his commitment to Christ. After high school, he attended J-38 school of ministry in Scottsboro, AL, where he developed his calling for ministry.
After completing the ministry program, Lucas gained most of his “hands-on” ministry experience as a counselor for a drug rehab program in AL called OMA (Outreach ministries of Alabama). After fulfilling his commitment there, he felt God calling him to pursue a ministry opportunity elsewhere and eventually came on staff here at Restoration Church as Youth Pastor. His heart and goal is to bring students closer to Jesus through relationship-building and Bible teaching.
Lucas enjoys outdoor activities such as, back packing and snowboarding. He is also a sports fan who grew up cheering for the Louisville cardinals – his favorite being the men’s basketball team. Lucas has been blessed with an amazing family of two loving parents (Brad and Jennifer) along with three brothers and four sisters. He is currently attending Southeastern University while pursuing a degree in Ministerial leadership. Lucas is excited for everything God has in store!
