Wes & Leslie met in 1999 at Auburn University where Wes became a believer. They married in 2002 and moved to the Nashville area for ministry. In 2008, they moved to Buffalo, NY for ministry and planting. While in Buffalo Wes began training in leadership, preaching, writing, theology, and doctrine. During this time, Wes and Leslie began to develop a burden for home to see people find focus for life, found in Christ. In March of 2016, on a visit home to the Gadsden Alabama area, it became clear that God was telling them to move home and plant churches.
Wes is a master's graduate of Southern Seminary.
