Personal Note:

Thank you for stopping by. I’m hopping to make the switch to a full time leadership position where my experience as an IT Manager, Webmaster, and even Blue-Collar worker can all be put into the service of Our Lord and Savior.

In some ways, this Website and my Quora account are the best statements of faith I can put out because they show how I really critically engage with the issues of personal faith and holiness.

I thank you for your time browsing this work history; the one thing that doesn’t come through in a resume is a person’s pastoral touch, their life-long experience in the church, and their proper fit with a potential congregation.

If any questions arise, please email me or contact me on Facebook (Facebook gets the fastest response) and I will gladly provide an answer.

Thanks again,

Paul Leonard

Church Specific Experience

Preaching

This is my “normal” level from when I started about 2 years ago. The Camera was terrible; I think you can make out the important bits enough to Judge it.

Another older one

This is a school sermon of a manuscript, it’s not a normal thing for me to use a script; I try to be well rounded and because Habakkuk (I was saying it odd) is a hard word, I’m including it here even though the Gospel section of the sermon didn’t get recorded. One should share sermons they are 50/50 on too.

Internship

I did my 1-year internship at Ekklesia 1 in Colton. It was a small house-church, and I decided that it would be the best thing to expand my experience. As the child of a Pastor I had already attended many institutional church meetings, Presbytery meetings, and have a very strong understanding of the operations of a medium congregation.

A house church offered the chance to simulate working in a mission field, church plant, etc. and even for positions in institutional churches I felt it would best expand my knowledge base. I had already gone on two mission trips to aid in Church facilities building in Ensenada, Baja California, attended the PC(USA) young leaders convention, served on a Pastor Nominating comity, and various ad-hoc project teams at 1st Pres. Colton.
