Our Pastors

Pastor Ed and Pastor Barb Leanza are Ohio natives who came to CCNaz in 2017.  They strongly believe in the family unit.  They have three adult children and seven grandchildren.  Their journey in ministry began in the late 80's in their home church in rural Irondale, Ohio.  Pastor Ed connected with the scriptures in 1 Corinthians 9:19-23 where the apostle Paul speaks of his own calling to the ministry, becoming all things to all (people) they he might win some.  

Pastor Ed is a graduate of Nazarene Bible College and Trevecca Nazarene University. He spent 23 years in Youth Ministry.  He is passionate about learning. He enjoys spending time with people discussing theology and doing life together. He believes in life-long learning and always strives to challenge himself to be 'stretched' as he studies the Scriptures.

Pastor Barb is also a graduate of the Nazarene Bible College and Point Loma Nazarene University. She is skilled in organization and structure. She loves to write curriculum and is very involved in ministry throughout the Church and in the community. Pastor Ed says she is the 'creative one' in the group and she is often called upon to spruce up the message.

Pastor Ed and Pastor Barb work together leading CCNaz to be a nurturing place for all who come.  They trust God to move in each persons life. They are driven to change the world by connecting people to the truth of God's love and acceptance through Jesus Christ. They believe the freedom found in Christ gives everyone hope for a life filled with purpose.
