Rev. Steven Leach

St. John's welcomes Steven Leach to our pulpit, Sunday January 26.

After an internship in a suburb of Johannesburg while in seminary, Rev. Leach felt called to South Africa. In January of 2012 he was called to minister in association with St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Capetown, being supported by First Presbyterian Church of San Antonio. Steven was active in the juvenile prison ministry and as a hospital chaplain among numerous other responsibilities.

Rev. Leach hopes to return to Capetown and continue his ministry  based on reconciliation. He submitted a grant proposal to help fund his next plan, a non-profit ministry to train community leaders to use dialogue
in resolving disputes rather than resorting to violence.

Steven is the son of Jeanne Leach and grandson of Thalia and Don Bunnell.
