DR. LESLIE W. SMITH
Dr. Leslie W. Smith is an accomplished Christian speaker, teacher, and evangelist. We at Amity Bible Church are grateful to have him serve as our Senior Pastor. Dr. Smith received his undergraduate degree from Grambling State University, completed additional graduate level study at George Washington University, earned a Master of Arts degree in Biblical Studies from Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS) and completed the Doctor of Ministry program at DTS.
After serving faithfully as a Senior Pastor for 25 years, Pastor Smith stepped down from pastoral ministry in December, 2014. In February, 2017, he put retirement on hold and answered God’s call to help establish Amity Bible Church, together with other faithful believers. Their goal is to be the church as Christ intended it to be. Under the leadership of dedicated Amity stewards, Amity continues to strive to know God and make Him known. Pastor Smith’s ministry focus continues to be on building strong marriages, strengthening families, and developing fully devoted followers of Christ. Through precept and example, Pastor Smith constantly endeavors to motivate the congregation to become a “new community” built on a “new commandment”.
He and his wife Glenna have been married for almost 50 years. They have two children and four grandchildren. Pastor Smith has embraced this new ministry opportunity as a call from God to be steadfast, unmovable and always abounding in the work of the Lord.
