Leslie has many years experience as a working woman. She has been assisting her husband, Dave, in his ministry and profession many years and providing a loving, happy home to their four children, Chantel, Micah, Phillip, and Jacob. Living with four children under one roof has proven to be one of the best continuing educational classes she has ever taken. Maintaining the family vision, and problem solving were in high demand, and put to the test daily.
Leslie has been an active and serving member of Kenai Christian Church over 30 years. In that time she has served in many capacities, be it nursery worker, high school teacher, VBS coordinator, member of the Education Team, or staff member. All of these roles have helped prepared her for her current role as minister to the women.
Born and raised in Alaska, Leslie has spent the last 60 + years enjoying the adventure of living in “The Last Frontier”, and God has used this time to prepare her for the many hats she has worn over the years. Living here has helped equip her for the different mission fields she has found herself in from South Africa, to Mexico, and most recently to Haiti. Her favorite mission however is at home, facilitating Women's Bible studies. Leslie believes that God is using her, in spite of what she is not.
With no children living at home, and precious grandchildren to spoil, she can only laugh at the days to come.
