As a young boy, Lucas vividly remembers standing on the US Capitol balcony (over his left shoulder of this photograph) as he watched Jimmy Carter inaugurated President of the United States just a few short yards away. Growing up in Washington DC, Lucas always had a keen sense of calling to this capital city and all it embodies. Lucas studied government and international relations, with honors, as an undergraduate. His early career experience was in politics and advocacy both on and off Capitol Hill. While political engagement is important, Lucas became increasingly aware that the deepest problems of our world are spiritual in nature. After a season on staff with Young Life, Lucas went to Denver Seminary and was ordained an Anglican priest in 2004. Having served in parish settings for over six years, Lucas’ increasing vision was to see “thy Kingdom come” among leaders in Washington in service of the poorest of the poor. With over two decades of experience in political, religious, non-profit, and business sectors, Lucas joined FH in 2011 as their Policy Advisor. In this role, Lucas walks with leaders on Capitol Hill and in the Administration while being a Kingdom voice for the world’s poor. Lucas lives in his hometown of Arlington, VA with his wife Chrissy and two children. He volunteers in his local community and provides pastoral assistance to local Anglican churches as a clergyman. He also enjoys commuting almost every day on his bicycle. Thank you for praying, supporting and joining Lucas as he obediently responds by faith to the unique calling and ministry set before him.
