Currently Leslie teaches courses having to do with catechesis, pedagogy, and spiritual formation at Trinity School for Ministry and Nashotah House Theological Seminary. She is a member of ACNA’s Committee for Catechesis as well as serving on the Anglican Family Working Group. The experience of raising three children concurrent with serving as the director of children and family ministry’s in a large urban parish definitely shaped Leslie’s passion for family life as a spiritual discipline.
