Our Pastor and Staff

The Reverend Lucas King

Pastor Lucas grew up in Wheaton, Illinois, attended college at Washington University in St. Louis where he majored in Political Science and Religion, and studied for his Master of Divinity at Harvard Divinity School and Eden Theological Seminary.  He was ordained in 2011 and called to serve the United Church of Christ – Longmont, Colorado.  Pastor Lucas began his ministry at HOPE in the fall of 2015.  Pastor Lucas is married to Dr. Adam King, a veterinary ophthalmologist, whose hobby of breeding and showing dogs means that they have a number of loving and supportive four-legged friends in their household.
