You know him as Leighton, I know him as Dad. And today is his birthday! We are so thankful for his ongoing ministry of mentoring and encouragement. In the midst of a global pandemic, he’s pivoted to Zoom and continues to invest in the next generation of missional leadership.
This morning, I started remembering all the happy times as a kid, playing basketball in our driveway or going on after dinner strolls with my mom and dad down Coltsgate Road. At the time, he was still a globe-trotting evangelist with a phenomenally busy schedule, but he made time to listen and journey with his younger son. Now, as Chief Catalyst of the ministry that he founded, I’m even more proud as I see over and over again his exponential impact through mentoring young ministry leaders.
Do you have a Leighton Ford story? In honor of his birthday, join me in sharing!
