Tom Lucas joins The Mentoring Alliance team with a strong background in information technology.  Originally planning a career in law enforcement, God led Tom down a different path.  He started in an entry-leve IT Operations role with GTE Directories.  This let to rapid promotions and learning web development in the early days of the internet.  A two-year Department of Justice Grant paved the opportunity for his joining the Arlington Police Department, developing innovative systems that led to being an invited speaker to a number of national and international policing conferences around the US.  As his career moved into management and leadership, he spent time in municipal government and then as a senior leader in the world of Bible translation with the Texas-based non-profit, The Seed Company. God's hand has provided opportunities to develop areas of proficiency in technology, operations, process re-engineering and high-performance team building.

Tom is married to his fabulous wife, Melissa, who is currently engaged supporting mothers of children fighting or taken by cancer.  They have a wonderful college-aged daughter, Dominique in the education program, looking to reach young children for Christ through non-traditional education, especially those who are disenfranchised or challenged by social inequities.

Tom is excited about being a part of The Mentoring Alliance.  He says, "Impacting young lives for Christ gets to the core of creating generational change and this is the space that TMA operates within.  I pray that with God's grace, I can be used to shepherd capacity building that positions TMA's wonderful staff to generate healthy growth of our prorams while maintaining our organizational culture."
