She was a 2016 Real McCoy and has previously been on two AYC trips. She has a passion for missions and youth ministry!
Andrew & Cassandra Lucas
Andrew was born in Japan to missionary parents and Cassandra's parents are from El Salvador, so missions is in our blood. (They are both bilingual)
They have been involved in various areas of youth ministry over the past 8 years as Youth Pastor at Dallas First Church and in various roles in the North Texas District.
Andrew has his bachelors degree in Theology from ABI in Minnesota and Cassandra has a degree in business finance. They live in Dallas, Texas with their daughter Amelia who they think is the most amazing little girl in the world.
Students will be spending a day serving at the Fresno Rescue Mission which is a non-profit charitable organization that serves the area’s destitute population.
AYC, for me, was the single most life changing trip of my life. It was life changing to see 33 Maasai tribe members receive the Holy Ghost, you could see the sweet Holy Spirit all over them. AYC gave me the opportunity to explore my love for missions, and even further my life in missions. I had the feeling I was called to global missions, my AYC trip completely confirmed that for me.
