Lucas Rouggly

Executive Director & Founder

I am a proud STL transplant from Southeast Missouri. Specifically, I grew up about 7 miles from the town of Jackson, Missouri. It was in this rural part of our country that I encountered Jesus. He changed my heart, my motives, and ultimately my direction in life.


In 2011, my wife and I moved our family onto Enright Avenue in North St. Louis. This helped launch LOVEtheLOU as an organization. Over the last decade we have experienced so much from our neighborhood. It's my pleasure to share all the good that is coming out of this historic part of our city.
