Pastor Lucas enlisted in the United States Army in 1980, where he served for two years as a sixteen Bravo Missiles Crewmen. Pastor Lucas watched his father go to work and how much his father seemed to enjoy the work he was doing. Pastor was intrigued by his father’s career as a Heating and Air Conditioning Technician, and he later started his own business in the Heating and Air Conditioning service in 1993. Pastor Lucas found the heating and air conditioning business to be very lucrative. He knew he had found his niche.

In conjunction with building New Covenant Heating and Air, in 1984, Pastor Joseph Lucas was led by God to accept his true calling. He accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior, which led to his Christian journey to become the Shepherd of his flock of Christian Life Church. In addition to pasturing at Christian Life Church, Pastor Lucas became an active member of the Shining Star Baptist Church located in Chase, Maryland. He served under the leadership of Pastor James Johnson.

Pastor Lucas’s duties at Shining Star Baptist Church were as a Youth Pastor and Sunday School Teacher. In 1990, Pastor immediately enrolled in the Arlington Bible College, where he worked to receive his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Biblical Studies. Pastor Lucas was later installed as an Ordained Deacon. He eventually achieved his license as an Associate Minister in 1992. He prepared for his Ministry as Pastor Joseph L. Lucas in 1994. He completed his assignment for the Lord in 1996, where he started preaching and accepted his calling.


In 2000, the Lord had another assignment for Pastor Lucas; he accepted the responsibility to assist Pastor Kevin Webster at the Rooted Bible Fellowship Church.

Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain. In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat-- for he grants sleep to those he loves. Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him.

Psalm 127 1
