Leonard and Leslie Hays have given their lives to the Gospel. The lived for 11 years in Latin America serving the poor and oppressed, training youth leaders, church planting and for the final 3 years planting and giving leadership to the house of prayer in Cuernavaca, Mexico. They raised their 3 children on the mission field, where, as a family, they lived out an incarnational Gospel. The Lord sovereignly called them out of the field where they transitioned to lief in Kansas City.
They were involved in pioneering several Departments at the International House of Prayer, where they were on full-time staff for 4 years. They traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and the nations helping the many small and large works, particularly in the areas of Prayer & Worship, House of Prayer, structure, forerunner message, Israel, fasted lifestyle, Holy Spirit and more... Some of the work they were involved in at IHOP was: Luke18Project, Apostolic Missions School, Director Translation Department, Director Hispanic Ministry, Prophetic Ministry Leadership.
In April 201, they packed up their household and moved to Vermont with 25 young people (primarily from IHOP) to live in community, run a farm, a restaurant and come alongside the house of prayer in Burlington, England.

There is a missional chip coupled with a community chip and a now developing and growing Love of the Father chip that is the essential DNA of Leonard and Lesley. After 4 years, in large part due to a complicated illness of their daughter, they returned to Kansas City where they currently reside.
Leonard & Leslie are passionate t see the sons and daughters of God walk in the fullness of freedom, unto the transformation of: individuals, families, Churches, businesses, cities, regions and nations.
