Maria Leslie
President & Event Coordinator

I’m Maria Leslie. I began attending to Christian Life Center in 2009. Together, with my husband Darren, We plan, coordinate and schedule all the events for Love Soup and Love My City Project.  I have 4 children and have helped raise 5 step children. I have 7 grand kids, 5 of them donate their time and help us with the events.

When I look back at some of the things I have gone through in my life, I know God was preparing me for what I am doing with my life right now. I feel blessed with the pleasure of having God use me in this way. I also have met many wonderful friends, children, women and men by doing what I really love… Serve and help those in need.
