My name is Davis Lacey. Raised in the mountains of North Georgia, educated as an engineer at Mercer University, currently pursuing a theological Master’s Degree through Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and working as a vacation designer – I am nothing if not well-rounded! When I’m not busy preparing to plant a church or designing a fabulous vacation for my clients, I enjoy reading, writing, watching sports and movies, most all forms of outdoor adventure. My wife and I have two kids – and we’ve also raised a house rabbit!

In many ways, I’ve been preparing to be a travel agent for my entire life. My mom founded Joyful Journeys when I was a child; growing up, I got to experience the special ways in which well-planned travel experiences bring families together (and keep them laughing for years to come!) More recently, while serving as a student pastor, my familiarity with the travel industry allowed me to develop experiences in which young people got to experience the outworking of their faith in foreign contexts. Since 2017, I’ve formally partnered with Joyful Journeys to help plan vacations for others. If you’d like to take the next step in planning the trip of your dreams – or if you’d simply like to hear the story of how an engineering student became a travel-planning church planter – call, text, or email me today!
