Designed for More with Lucas Ramirez '01
Posted 01/03/2019 09:16AM

Non-profit executive, author, and keynote speaker Lucas Ramirez ’01 will speak at DC’s Upper Campus on Thursday, January 24 at 7:00pm. He is the debut author of Designed for More – Unleashing Christ’s Vision for Unity in a Deeply Divided World.

Released in June, 2018 by FaithWords, Designed for More draws groundbreaking implications for how to achieve unity and collective movement through new research on a jaw-dropping phenomenon of flocking starlings known as a murmuration. Author and pastor David Nasser notes “Designed for More brilliantly draws applicational truth from a rare phenomenon in the sky to everyday life in the community.” Mark Betterson, New York Times bestselling author of The Circle Maker and Lead Pastor of National Community Church writes "As long as followers of Christ stay in their comfortable silos and tribes, the world will never experience the full power of the Church. Designed for More gives us a beautifully memorable and practical way forward to become the united body of Christ.

Lucas was originally born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and at the age of six, he immigrated to the United States with his family. He is a graduate of DC (01') and Eastern University (05') and now lives out his passion for raising up the next generation of leaders in his role as the President and CEO of The Gathering Place, an innovative student mentoring and Christian leadership development organization in Georgia that impacts over 8,000 students annually. He has spoken at venues such as TEDx, Catalyst Conference, Youth Specialties and the Georgia House of Representatives. His work has been featured on FOX & Friends, Relevant, Washington Times, and Outreach Magazine.

Lucas married his college sweetheart, Thea, who is the founder and CEO of Adoption-Share. The couple has three children and lives on the Georgia coast.
