Lucas Powers


Hello, my name is Lucas Powers. I am from Avon, CT and am currently attending Penn State University. My story with God and Jesus is complicated, yet simple. I grew up in a Catholic household and was never pursued my faith in high school. Yet, God works in mysterious ways as I found out with my girlfriend. The summer between my senior year of high school and freshman year of college, she  really ignited my faith and showed me what it's like to be a Christian. 

When I went to college I joined Cru. Cru has helped me grow my trust in Jesus and strengthen my faith. They have showed me what a community of people can do through the Lord's love. I am excited to spend a part of my summer with Nations and seeing what the Lord has in store for me. Some words from Nations can be seen below.

Nations was born out of a vision to honor First Nations people while trusting God to restore their lives and culture with Christ. God has chosen us to be a part of an exciting moment in history where we are experiencing a new day in Native ministry. The indigenous people of North America have experienced 500 years of historical trauma due to an ethnocentric missionary approach and colonial greed. Yet, God in his faithfulness is restoring Native Americans to be crucial members of the body of Christ for his Kingdom purposes. We will be working alongside these Natives which is an exciting new chapter in Cru’s history. 

I'm excited for what God has in store for me this summer in Browning, MT. I'm excited to be immersed in a new culture and share how God has changed my life to others. You can contact me at my email Thanks for reading this and God bless you.​​
