Our hearts were saddened to hear of Pastor Lucht's passing. We fondly remember he and Joy and the kids from our Blue Ridge Bible Church days! So many years gone by. He married our daughter Jan and her husband Chris. Condolences to all.

Pastor Jim married me and my husband at Blue Ridge Bible Church in 1990. So many fond memories of him as a pastor, a dad, a neighbor and a friend. Thinking about Joy and family during this difficult time. God bless you all!

You are now in God’s hands. So glad that we got to spend some cousin time together.

Jim married my wife, Nancy, and I at Blue Ridge Bible Church on April 23, 1977. It was his first at BRBC and third overall. I ran into Jim at various places over the years, most recently at morning workouts at Legacy Park Community Center. He was always cheerful and upbeat. We know he had a great love for the LORD and enjoyed serving Him. Nancy and I extend our sincere sympathy to Joy and all of his family.

Jim came to MBTS Bookstore almost weekly. He was our friend with his quick wit and smiles. We are greatly saddened and will miss so much the joy he gave us. We are saddened with you and have you in our prayers.

<3 love you all! (And it’s actually “Harper” rather than Helena). Wish we could be there! Uncle Jim was so fun to visit - I remember, as kids, laughing and having a blast with him. Can’t believe he’s gone!

Pastor Lucht visited me in St. Joseph Hospital back in 1983. I had been attending Blue Ridge Bible Church at the time and he was assistant pastor there. His wife Joy was the piano player if I remember right. He was the nicest most comforting person I had ever met. He really knew the lord and the scriptures. I have since moved away, but I never forgot his wonderful bedside manner and how he and how encouraging he was/ He was great preacher of the word and a devoted man of God. Please accept my heartfelt condolences for your loss Louis Reale

I shared 3 grandchildren with Jim and loved his whole family. I will dearly miss him. My heart aches for Joy, Jeff, Josh, and Jill as well as for daughters-in-law Trissa and Joia, my son David, and the 8 grandchildren. Micah, Leah, and Austin, your grandparents love you so much whether on Earth or from Heaven.

Bob Hamilton

You blessed my family so much! Sunday morning smiles and hugs while holding your big gulp drink! Always loved to listen to the grown ups talk at your kitchen table while we kids played. Thank you for being a part of my childhood family

Joy and family: We were certainly surprised and saddened to hear today of Jim's Homegoing. My mind immediately went back to all of the old memories. I couldn't begin to take up so much space on the memory page to mention several of them. Our days at Calvary Bible College, trips Jim and I took from Kansas City to Peoria especially the one trip in the winter with a broken down car, and the list could go on. Your have our love, prayers and heartfelt sympathy. May all of the memories you and your family have help to provide comfort in the days ahead. Knowing that Jim is "Absent from the Body, but Present with the Lord" is a tremendous Promise. What better can you ask than that.
