Pastor Leake is the Pastor Emeritus at Monroeville Assembly of God.
Becky and I just celebrated forty four years of marriage. Next to our relationship to the Lord, our greatest joy in life has been our relationship with each other. We enjoy working together, walking together, traveling together and serving the Lord together.
We have had the privilege of serving as pastor at two Assembly of God churches. We began in ministry at the age of 20 and 21 leading the church in Titusville for two and one half years. Because the church in Monroeville had been without a pastor for seven months, we agreed to speak to the congregation of eleven for one Sunday as we returning from attending a wedding in Maryland and passed through Monroeville. That one Sunday of ministry led to a forty year tenure as pastor of Monroeville Assembly of God. The Lord blessed our family and the church with growth during those years. Not many pastors are blessed with the privilege of dedicating children, marrying those children and dedicating their babies. God graced our lives because he allowed us to see physical and spiritual growth in so many and the members of the congregation became our family. During the year of 2005 we began to feel that God was calling us into another area of ministry. It was with much nostalgia that we resigned as pastor to enter into the field of part time missions. We miss our friends at Monroeville Assembly but we are excited about following God wherever He leads.
