Reverend Bud and Cindy Leach

Pastor Bud and his wife, Cindy, have been married since 1986 and they have three grown children. Jennifer lives with her husband, Bruce, in San Diego, California. Jacob (27) lives in Michigan with his brother, Joe (25).

The Leachs came to us in July 2015 after serving in Michigan for six years.

Pastor Bud is a graduate of Nazarene Bible College (BA Pastoral Ministries) and Northwest Nazarene University (MA Missional Leadership).

The Leachs have served the church of the Nazarene in Colorado, Nebraska, Michigan, and New York.

Pastor Bud was ordained as an Elder on June 12, 2009 at North Platte Nebraska.

Pastor loves hunting, cutting firewood and playing hockey. He is a lifelong Detroit Red Wings fan. Go Wings! Cindy enjoys working out, caring for people and is a huge fan of her children.

As a couple, the Leachs love serving God and people wherever they are called. The Scripture verse for their life together is Ephesians 4:32, “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ, God forgave you.”

Nazarene Statement of Belief

Taken from nazarene.org.

These are the beliefs Nazarenes hold to be true:

We believe in one God-the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe that the Old and New Testament Scriptures, given by plenary inspiration, contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living.

We believe that man is born with a fallen nature, and is, therefore, inclined to evil, and that continually.

We believe that the finally impenitent are hopelessly and eternally lost.

We believe that the atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race; and that whosoever repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin.

We believe that believers are to be sanctified wholly, subsequent to regeneration, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe that the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the entire sanctification of believers.

We believe that our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.
