About Leslie Thompson

Leslie Thompson

Connections Ministry Director



I was born in Dallas, Texas. I was the second of three girls. At the age of eight, my family moved to the Chicago area. I grew up with parents who loved Jesus and ensured my siblings and I knew who He was. I trusted Jesus as the Lord of my life at the age of seven. While in college at Asbury University (Wilmore, KY), my knowledge of the Lord grew. However, it wasn’t until I was getting my master’s at the University of South Carolina, that I experienced God in ways I’d never experienced. After graduation, I continued living in South Carolina for the next seven years where the Lord showed me the power of Christian community and the importance of connecting and serving.

In December of 2018, God called me to move closer to family here in Wisconsin. Through this transition, an opportunity at Alliance developed to serve in a ministry that is near to my heart, connecting people to the Lord and one another.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family, going on adventures with friends, and cheering on the Packers.
