Keri Lynn Lucas was born and raised in Odessa, Texas where she is a member of FUMC Odessa. She ended up in Dallas pursuing God’s call on her life to go into ministry. She is working her BS in Christian Studies and MA in Family Ministry with a minor in business at Dallas Baptist University and participating in worship and ministry at Lovers Lane UMC. She enjoys watching Texas Rangers baseball, baking (and eating) cupcakes, and the smell of a campfire. During her time as the CLD Faith Formation Intern she hopes to learn many different sides of ministry all the while living out her favorite verse: Philemon 1:6 “And I am praying that you will put into action the generosity that comes from your faith as you understand and experience all the good things we have in Christ.”
