He is fluent in Spanish and has been actively involved in mission work around the globe. Les was called by the Cross Baptist Church family on February 19, 2023, to serve as Associate Pastor of Worship and Family Ministries. Les has an extensive ministry resume including worship leadership, recording artist, vocal coaching, acting and consulting on major Christian drama productions including playing the part of Jesus in numerous productions. Les was the lead pastor for the Holy Land Experience in Orlando, FL while also playing the role as Jesus for more than a decade.

As Family Ministries pastor, Les will oversee the youth and children’s ministries of the church. He will provide leadership for our very talented and experienced volunteers in these ministries. We look forward to the growth of the church as we work to reach these young families and the youth of our community with the love of Christ. As Worship pastor, Les will give direction to our already gifted choir and music ministry. We anticipate the growth in these ministries to attract many people in our community through dramatic productions in the Easter and Christmas seasons as well as various opportunities to include the greater Eufaula community in events that with lift up and glorify our awesome God through music and dramatic productions throughout the year.
