My name is Leanne and I am a pastor, speaker and writer living in Hamilton, Canada.  Since 2005, I have served as the lead pastor of a very relaxed church with a very long name: “Mount Hamilton Baptist Church.” We are a regular church of regular people, who keep seeing extraordinary things because – Jesus.

I love to preach and teach, and do so each week at my church and also at various conferences and retreats.   

I write about lots of different things on this blog. Common themes revolve around pastoring, leading as a woman, and grieving. In 2013, I lost a sister to cancer, and that journey of grief taught me a lot about the importance of grief and lament, especially for followers of Jesus. I write about grief often. As a woman and as a lead pastor, I am also thankful that I can encourage other women who may share a call to lead, and provide a living example of the ways God can use a woman in any way God wishes to call them.
