Pastor Jim Lugar and his wife Vickie began ministering together in the spring of 1986 in an evangelistic drama team led by Vickie. A year later they were married and began building their family and life together. After several years of serving their local church in youth and women’s ministry, they sensed God’s call on their life to take the next step in ministry and attended bible college. Upon returning home to Texas, Jim was hired by a large church in Plano where he served as an associate pastor for 8 years.
In the spring of 2008, Jim and Vickie again sensed God’s call to take the next step in ministry, and planted Life Journey Church in January 2009. Their heart is to make disciples of Jesus Christ who will go into the world, loving as Jesus loved, serving as Jesus served, and boldly proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ.
They live in Frisco, TX and have three adult children: Nicole, Sean and Jennifer.
