To Whom It May Concern,

It is indeed a great pleasure for me to recommend Scott Lucas as a candidate for your firm in the field of Audio Engineering and Production. I have known Scott for almost five years and serve as the pastor of his home church in Virginia Beach.

Through the years, I have observed Scott to be a person of the utmost Christian integrity who exemplifies a commitment to excellence in everything he does. Through his training and experience, he has been able to acquire a great deal of expertise to compliment his natural enthusiasm for the field of audio production.

For a number of years, Scott served our church as our Minister of Music. In that role, he led our church in taking giant steps in redesigning and upgrading our audio/video technology and capabilities. Part of this process involved the development of a Media Lab for the expressed purpose of audio and video production. This lab is still a vital part of our outreach ministry to this day.

Scott is a person of vision and creative energy. He is resourceful and innovative in his approach to problem solving. He is a team player who is committed to the corporate success of his team. I believe that he will be an asset to your organization and with this, I heartily recommend him for consideration as member of your corporate team. If I may be of any further assistance to you in this matter, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,

Rodney S. Vickers, D. Min. Senior Pastor - Pastor Rodney Vickers

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

I am writing this recommendation in behalf of Mr. D. Scott Lucas who presently resides in Nashville, Tennessee with his family.

Since I have been in the position of the family pastor for 20 plus years, I have not only known Scott personally but I have had the opportunity to observe some important transitions in his life. Not the least of these transitions has been his marriage to Michelle and the development of their family which now includes a son and a daughter. I commend him as a serious husband and father and as a Christian man of commitment and integrity.

To say that Scott Lucas loves music would be an understatement. I would say that he not only loves music but he loves the things which relate to music…music, singing, sound, recording and recording studios, etc. As an example, before taking the position in Nashville, he put a considerable amount of time and talent into developing the media lab for our church (Azalea Garden Church in Virginia Beach) which included both audio and video. I think that you could say that music and singing and the recording aspect of these are not just things which Scott enjoys and derives a livelihood from, but that it goes much deeper than that.

While being in Nashville the last few years, he has availed himself of additional training opportunities in the audio field and received his Associate of Science degree in Audio Production.

If I can provide additional information concerning Scott, I encourage you to give me a call on my cell phone (757-287-6356). I would be delighted if I could assist him as he seeks other opportunities in music and sound where he can utilize his skills and talents.

Sincerely,


Aubrey D. Maye
Pastor Emeritus
Azalea Garden Church - Pastor Aubery Maye

Bio

Scott Lucas, a native of Virginia Beach, Virginia, has been singing the high praises of God for most of his life. From the rich musical heritage of the Pentecostal church, Scott began singing with his family as a young boy, and by age 12, he was a regular featured soloist with the sanctuary choir at his home church. With the development of his gift came more opportunities to reach broader audiences, and by age 16, Scott took his vocal ministry on the road and performed before audiences ranging from prison and street ministries to regional and statewide church conferences. As Scott continued to minister in song, God’s calling on his life became more apparent. James Wilson, former male-vocalist and pianist for Joyce Meyer Ministries said of him, “Scott has a real heart for ministry and a love for people.” Scott’s gift and heart for ministry continued to open doors, and at age 18, he began to travel with James Wilson Ministries. Later that same year, Scott sang before an audience at the RCA Superdome for the Church of God General Assembly where he was named Male-Vocalist of the year for the state of Virginia.
In addition to his ministry as a vocalist, Scott has also obtained extensive experience in the promotion and production of Christian music. Scott got his start by promoting local independent artists and later went on to become a regional coordinator for artists from major Christian labels. Scott has promoted and/or produced live concerts for such well-known artists as The Gaither Homecoming Concert Series, Michael English, Mark Lowry, Clay Crosse, Michael W. Smith, Avalon, Newsong, Rebecca St. James, Natalie Grant, and many others.
At the core of Scott’s ministry is his commitment as a worshiper. He attributes this commitment to the deep roots that he planted as a member and later as the Praise and Worship leader at the Azalea Garden Church in Virginia Beach. Senior Pastor Aubrey Maye said of him, “Scott is a great communicator and an effective Minister of Music. I have observed within him a freshness of commitment and sincerity which has only enhanced his ability to minister through song.”
Apart from his love for the Lord, the love of Scott’s life is his lovely wife, Michelle, and their two children: son, Casey and daughter, Skyler. Scott said of Michelle, “Other than Jesus, she is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. She is the main reason I am who I am today!” Scott and his family currently reside in Nashville, Tennessee where he serves as the lead singer for the long-time Southern Gospel group, the Telestials, where he was nominated as Male Vocalist of The Year & Sunrise Artist of The Year in the 2009 Diamond Awards. In addition to his work with the group, Scott has also earned his Associates Degree in Audio Production, graduating Magna Cum Laude.
