Andrew & Cassandra Lucas
I, Andrew, was born in Japan to missionary parents and Cassandra's parents are from El Salvador, so missions is in our blood. (We're both bilingual)
We 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.
I have my bachelors degree in Theology from ABI in Minnesota and Cassandra has a degree in business finance. We live in Dallas, Texas with our daughter Amelia who we think is the most amazing little girl in the world.
Pure religion is to visit the fatherless and the widows in their affliction…we will be living out James 1:27 in a very real and personal way. Up close and personal interactions with orphans and widows. Be prepared to be the hands of feet of Jesus and His love, compassion and grace. However, trust me when I say…you will be blessed as much as being a blessing to others.
AYC changed my life. My desire to reach out and witness to hungry souls was both ignited and deepened on this trip. This was an incredible experience and something I will carry with me the rest of my life.
