Kevin Leach

Pastor Kevin and his wife, Cindy, were called from Massachusetts to serve at Woodland Presbyterian Church in December 2016.  They continue to refer to this cross country move as ‘God’s blessed adventure’ and feel privileged to be a part of a very special church family.

Pastor Kevin has been in ministry since 1987, serving four churches – three in the Conservative Congregational Christian Conference (4C’s) and now as a Teaching Elder/Pastor in the Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC).

The Leaches have five adult children who live in various locations throughout the United States:  Becca, Emily, Braedan, Katie and Calleigh.
