    Mother Leslie comes to us from Arlington, Virginia where she has served as Rector at St. Michael’s since 2002.

    Experienced in ministry with all ages, Leslie focuses on Christian formation and has been directly involved in development of Vacation Bible School and other Christian Education programs. Along with her wife Katie, Leslie enjoys getting out into the community. She started a very popular theological group meeting once a month for diner or drinks, and LOVES baseball!

     

    “As a priest in parish ministry for 17 years (and for my entire life before that as an Episcopalian), I emphasize a focus on growing in the Spirit as individuals and as a community to be Christ’s Body in the world.”

  • Bob Daugherty
    Bob Daugherty
    Communications
    954-467-6496, ext. 1104

    As a member of All Saints since 1993 (and as a staff member most of that time), Bob is pleased to be working with communication issues and supporting the parish within this transition period. Bob says that what never ceases to amaze him about working at All Saints is that it takes every bit of his experience on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., heading up non-profit trade associations, and working for two Christian Schools here in South Florida just to keep up with the daily and normal activities. This is a dynamic, multifaceted ministry, and he is honored to be part of it. Transition simply means getting ready to expand ministry in Fort Lauderdale.
