Lucas Kaufman has been with Little Friends since 2021, joining as an assistant, and now teaches one of the one-year-old classes.
He recently married Claire Kaufman, who works at the Jacksonville Zoo. They enjoy climbing, running, and reading together. Having graduated from the University of North Florida with degrees in psychology and anthropology, Lucas is now pursuing Biblical Counseling certification. Lucas sees childcare and teaching as a ministry, and in his time at Little Friends, he has learned the role compassion plays in discipleship and pointing others to Christ. He is enjoying this season of growth and is enthusiastic about fostering empathy in young hearts like those in his class.
