Lucas is one of Manningham UC’s Minsters of the Word having begun with the former Doncaster East Uniting Church in 2009 prior to the formation of MUC. Lucas’ role includes leading worship and preaching regularly, pastoral oversight and working with leadership to ensure clarity and articulation of MUC’s continually emerging vision.
Lucas has passion for the exploration of how informed faith aids people (in contemporary society and culture) to construct lives of depth, meaning and purpose. He is committed to ecumenical and inter-faith cooperation and the realisation of the Kingdom both within and beyond the edges of the church. He is enlivened by the intersection of culture, contemporary scholarship and the living out of a transformative faith.
