We are almost one year into our journey as a church, and we know that we would be nowhere without people who have chosen to make the180 their home. As a way to reflect on this past year, we are featuring several individuals and families who joined us along the way. By serving and gathering with us, these people have truly made the180 special and help us look forward to our ongoing journey of learning and growing in Quebec. Today, meet Lucas!

What stage are you at in life?

I am 21 years old and am currently studying at McGill University in the Physical Education and Health program. I also balance a part time job at a pizza shop and a relationship with my lovely girlfriend of 4 years.

How long have you been attending the180 and how have you been involved?

I have been at the180 since even before its official launch, when we were only meeting every other week. It’s really amazing how far we’ve come since then! The180 has provided me with many new opportunities to learn. One of the first things I got involved with was the Slides Team, and I then decided to join the180 Kids Team as well. I have also been working closely with the180 Youth. This has given me the chance to interact with other youth leaders and to develop new relationships with teenagers who attend the church. I was also given the opportunity to do an internship at the church this past summer, which allowed me to grow in so many ways as I provided support to our youth and families by hanging out with kids and organizing events. Working with the kids and youth group at the 180 has confirmed for me that working with children and being a teacher is something that I want to do for the rest of my life.

How is the180 helping you discover God in a new way?

One of the ways the 180 is helping me discover God in a new way is the idea of serving. God has made each of us unique and has given us all our own special gifts. The 180 has been a place that has allowed me to find and use my gifts to serve others and God. We have many teams where individuals use their gifts to serve others and the church. It is amazing seeing so many people come together to serve and volunteer for one common goal.
