Leanne Ford


I can now officially call myself a Nelsonian, having lived here longer than my time growing up in Auckland. God has been central to my life since my early teenage years and I love serving him in whatever ways He has enabled me. God’s love is offered to everyone, and it is an incredible privilege that he would use us, His people, to tell others about him. I am passionate about enabling, encouraging and walking alongside people as we each take Jesus’ love into our world.

Favourite Scripture: “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Relaxation: Lingering over coffee with friends, running, working in the vegetable garden, reclining with a book, and spending time with my husband and children.

Interesting fact: I have sailed on the Mississippi, found gold at the end of a rainbow, and along with other blackbirds, been baked in a pie … all in the name of entertainment in the Farmer’s Santa Parade
