Chris and Leslie Davies have been the Co-Lead Pastors at New Life since February 2019. They both grew up in upstate New York in the small towns of Pulaski (C) and Parish (L). After spending 5 years going to school in Oklahoma and serving in ministry for another 5 years in Michigan, Chris and Leslie have found their way back home. Within those 10 years they got married and had their first child, Noelle. Since moving back to New York and starting their ministry at New Life, they have had their second child, Judah. Chris and Leslie are passionate about people coming to know and follow Jesus. They believe that life transformation is possible as people experience the overwhelming love of God and responsively love God, love others, and love life. Chris loves to golf, fish, and play board games. Leslie loves to sing, act, and frequent different coffee shops. Together they most enjoy parenting their daughter and son. Their children bring great joy to even the hardest of days. They enjoy taking their kids to parks, museums, and zoos, or just relaxing at home and making the most of every day. Chris and Leslie are excited for the future of New Life Community. Chris’ life verse is Jeremiah 29:11 and Leslie’s life verse is Romans 8:28. Because of that, they believe that in all things, God is working for NLC’s good to bring a bright future and hope as NLC loves God with their whole hearts.
