Having distinguished herself for three decades as a missionary, educator, and evangelist, Rev. Dr. Austin Lucas is revered for her vibrant and energetic preaching style that preempts a visionary and leader of leaders. In 1974 she served as the initial participant of the Teachers-In-Partnership Program sponsored by the AME Church. Her assignment was to Monrovia, Liberia (West Africa) within the Fourteenth Episcopal District where she taught English at the University of Liberia and Monrovia College. Since her initial missionary training in Monrovia, Liberia, Rev. Dr. Austin Lucas has sponsored subsequent Educational Mission Tours/Workshops to Haiti, West Africa and various countries throughout the Caribbean.
Armed with a call to missions, Rev. Dr. Austin Lucas effectively established and co-founded ministries and programming internationally recognized as models of vision and change. The formidable molding of such was formulated while serving in ministerial leadership at Eliza Turner AME Church in Monrovia, Liberia (1974-1975), Josie D. Heard AME Church in Philadelphia, PA (1976-1977), and Agape AME Church in Buffalo, NY (1977-1982). Her leadership at these institutions was essential to the establishment of youth programming, and the training of missionaries (youth and adults) under the auspices of the Women's Missionary Society (WMS) and its Young People's Department (YPD). During her ministerial leadership at Bridge Street AWME Church in Brooklyn, New York as Minister to Families (1982-1986), she continued her work with Youth while establishing the After School Tutorial Center and Summer Program and spearheaded the proposal for the Bridge Street Preparatory School.
In 1986, she was appointed Assistant Pastor and was responsible for the administration and/or implementation of community programming in her preceded role as it related to the Ethelyn Henderson Missionary Society, the After School Tutorial Center and Summer Program, and the founding of the Bridge Street Preparatory School, where she served as the first Chairman of the Board of Directors. Under her Assistant Pastorate (1986-1996), Bridge Street AWME Church evidenced tremendous growth in membership (700 to over 4,000), enterprise ($200,000 to a multi-million dollar enterprise), and spiritual enrichment (a flux of members seeking a one-on-one relationship with Christ in order to fulfill their purpose) realized in Bedford Stuyvesant and throughout New York City.
