When you think back to being 16, does it involve impacting well over 60,000 people across 37 states & in 7 countries? No? Me either. Asheboro’s Lucas Hunt, creator of the Thank You Jesus Movement, has sold 60,000 yard signs [& counting] in the 14 months since the beginning. Those three words “Thank You Jesus” have so much power in them. “I’ve always wanted to do something big for God, but I always thought I was too young. This way I can reach more people for God than I could ever reach on my own.” says Lucas Hunt.
Lucas first had the idea as a Christmas sign that reminded those who passed by that “Jesus is the reason for the season.” At Easter he wanted to send the same message. His second thought was to create a simplified version that could be quickly read, understood & held onto. This Easter sign quickly transformed into a daily sign of thanksgiving to God for every blessing. “It’s an everyday thing. You pull out of your driveway, you pull in, you see it and you think of something you’re thankful for,” he said.
Recently, Lucas’ movement has blossomed. He has begun offering this message on magnets for your car, refrigerator, etc. They are also producing a version in Spanish in order to share this hope with even more people. As soon as I heard about these signs & knew that I would be starting this year-long project I knew that I had to reach out to Lucas! It was such an incredible honor to meet someone younger than myself that is showing love in such a big way. A friend of Lucas, Terry Russell said, "It is my goal to see one sign in every yard!"
