ABOUT LESLIE SWIATOCHO:
Leslie was raised in a Christian home and graduated from a ACE Christian school. Her father, Dr. Farrell Osborne was a pastor for many years. When he was living he was our evangelist of Bible Baptist Church. They traveled for over 10 years singing and preaching for the glory of God. Although she was raised in a Christian home and made a profession of faith at an early age, she later realized her lack of salvation in her life and was truly saved on November 14, 1984. Leslie is a talented piano player and singer and currently plays and sings for our church as well as leads our women's ministry and many other things. She has recorded many Christian albums that are available on the web site, Esther's Voice!
Pastor Chris and Leslie have been married since 1995 and have two girls, Keely and Abby and one son, Shepherd.
God has done marvelous things at Bible Baptist Church. People have been saved, lives have been changed, and some have surrendered to full time Christian service.
