How to LOVE Your Pre Born Neighbor
Leslie travels and works globally, sharing a message of hope and truth. Being a God-chaser, wife, mom, and mission leader, Leslie brings a unique perspective on both the local and global scale of abortion. Audiences claim Leslie’s talks expand their minds and hearts while she equips and challenges them to carry a life-giving message to a broken world.
Leslie has been married to Chad since 1998, and they have four children: Joeli, Joy (in heaven), Eden Samuel, and Phoebe (adopted from China). They travel the globe together as a family on mission and reside in the Tampa Bay area. Leslie holds a Doctorate of Missiology degree from Fuller Graduate School and is a graduate of Samford University.
For over two decades, Leslie (with her husband Chad) have been meeting needs, making disciples, and planting “multiplying house churches” among the least reached parts of Asia through the organization they co-founded, 10/40 Connections. 10/40 merges the Word and Deed of Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit.
In 2010, Leslie wrote a curriculum called Voice for the Voiceless after losing a child to a miscarriage. VFV weaves the science of the reproductive system, baby development, the injustice of abortion, and the Gospel. In 11 languages, VFV is a valuable church-planting tool to engage unreached communities. Thousands of Asian participants have been equipped through the seminar, and 10/40 has trained hundreds of life advocates who teach VFV in local languages. Leslie loves equipping Asians (and others!) in apologetics, helping them defend life in the marketplace. Leslie and Chad also helped start Life Voices in 2020, a global coalition of believers seeking to end the genocide of abortion in Jesus’ name.
As the newest LTI speaker and with the U.S. as her base, Leslie is starting to speak in churches, colleges, and schools in the U.S. with an engaging message of life. Leslie’s bright smile and powerful storytelling bring both encouragement and challenge as she approaches the defense of life with truth and grace.
