"Man On Truck"

Virginia Beach- Many people spent Labor Day weekend at parks, beaches, or backyard cookouts but not the people affected by hurricane Katrina and not one Virginia Beach man. Scott Lucas spent his Labor Day weekend on top of a truck waving at cars, getting attention and raising money. For three days Scott stayed perched on top of a 15-foot truck, collecting donations.

"This is about how high the water was in New Orleans," Lucas said, pointing to the top of the truck he was sitting on. "A lot of people lived up here, like I'm doing, with nothing. I've got power and, of course a cell phone, if I need it. If there's an emergency, I can come down, but they couldn't."
Lucas and his church, Azalea Garden Church of God, are helping fund Operation Compassion, an effort that will send dozens of 18-wheelers filled with food, water and other supplies to hurricane-ravaged areas.
He said seeing Katrina's destruction made him want to help, and his novel idea is working.
"I decided to turn around and come back, and give some money for the truck, water, whatever they need down there," said Mike Karslake, who drove by and saw Lucas on top of the truck.
"I have an 11-year-old son, and I also have a 2-year-old daughter," Lucas said. "And she was up here earlier, and I can't imagine having to carry her through the water like that. And I would hope that if something came like that here, that maybe someone in New Orleans, or somebody across the country would be raising money to help me."
The church even took their Sunday services outside, and more people stopped to donate. Lucas is the worship leader at the church and Sunday morning he led worship from on top of the truck. “Thanks to the media lab, video, and lots of cables I was able to lead worship from the top of the truck while everyone else was inside the church building!” Sunday night everyone met outside for a time of worship and reflection. WTKR News channel 3 and WVEC News channel 13 even showed up to do a live story while the evening service was going on and throughout the days and nights. Scott’s story was even seen on CNN.
"These people are hurting, and they need us, and sometime we may need them," said Judy Owens, who donated money. "We've got to reach out and do this for them."
As daylight disappeared Monday Night, and they turned on the spotlight, Lucas was still going strong, some 51 hours later.
"They've got a long road ahead of them, and we want to do as much as we can to help out."
Lucas stayed on top of the truck from Saturday until 9 p.m. Monday night. Lucas and the church were able to raise $16,703. However, thanks to a supporter who promised to double any amount raised, the total was $33,406!!! “My goal is to raise $100,000 for Katrina victims, so I ain’t done yet!”

Bio

Scott Lucas was born and raised in Virginia Beach, Va. Scott has been singing Christian music practically all his life. His powerful vocals come from the anointing God has placed on him. Scott began singing in his small Pentecostal church with his family. At the young age of 9 Scott was singing solos with the church youth choir and by 12 he was featured as a soloist with the adult choir. By 16 Scott was being asked to sing all over Virginia, from church services, youth events, jail rallys, street ministries, conferences, etc. It was obvious to Scott and those around him that Christian music was where his heart was. "I have found that Scott has a real heart for ministry and a love for people", say's James Wilson. (Former male-vocalist & pianist for Joyce Meyer Ministries) At 18, Scott began to travel part-time with James Wilson Ministries. That same year Scott sang at the Church of God General Assembly, at the RCA Superdome, where he was named Male-Vocalist of the year for the state of Virginia. Scott has also been involved in the promotion and production side of Christian music as well. Scott began promoting independent artist locally and later went on to become a local coordinator for signed artist. Scott has promoted and/or produced live concerts for such well-known artist as The Gaither Homecoming concerts, FFH, Mark Lowry, Clay Crosse, Michael W. Smith, Anointed, Michael English, Avalon, Newsong, Rebecca St. James, Natalie Grant, and many others. Until this year Scott was the Praise & Worship leader at, his home church, the Azalea Garden Church in Virginia Beach. I have attended this church since the age of 7. It was at this very church that my music ministry was birthed. It was here that I learned how to reach people of all ages, races, and even denominations through music, says Scott. "Scott communicates well through his singing and ministers effectively to the congregation. I have observed a fresh commitment and sincerity which have enhanced his ability to minister through song", say's Pastor Aubrey Maye. Scott and his family now live in Nashville, TN. Scott and his wife, Michelle, have two children. A son, Casey, and a daughter, Skyler. Currently Scott is working to finish a solo CD being produced by his good friend, Shane Dunlap. (Formerly with N Harmony and Signature Sound Quartet) "Scott Lucas is a true man of God, with an incredible passion for ministry. If you meet the guy, you will love his spirit and the way he communicates with people", says Shane Dunlap. Scott simply wants to use the talents that God has given him to reach others. Scott can been seen at his many solo appearances as well as on the road with Shane Dunlap. Scotts message is simple God Loves, God Saves and God forgives!
