As an evangelist, Lucas Connell’s ministry is known for soul winning and releasing people from one of the greatest sicknesses of our generation – mental illness. He commonly sees people healed from chronic depression and anxiety. In one service people will laugh at his humorous stories and weep by the touch of God. As he ministers in the power of the Holy Spirit, addictions are broken and people experience true freedom through inner healing.
His ministry is a testimony of triumph over a ten-year drug addition. Gripped by mental illness – depression, hearing voices and suicidal tendencies were all part of the drug-induced psychosis that had become Lucas’ normal way of life – until he stepped into a local church. After one encounter with Jesus, he was instantly set free from all addiction and healed of every illness that gripped his life.
After 10 years of pastoring in Australia, Lucas has spent the last six years traveling the globe, preaching at some of the world’s great churches, such as Hillsong, Planetshakers, Wave Church Virginia, C3 San Diego, and many others.
Following God’s leading, Lucas, together with his wife Jacque and their two sons, Josiah (11) and Caleb (10) have relocated to the USA to continue to reach as many people as possible with the love and freedom of Jesus.
