We’re Michael and Lissa Lecy, two Midwesternerners who have been swept into an incredible story that only God himself could write.
We’ve been married for 8 years and have two daughters and twin sons.
Finley, our oldest is almost five and has a generous and compassionate heart towards others. Auden, our two year old, is a joy-bringer who dives right into life. Our twin boys, Israel and Benjamin were born earlier this year and have become such a natural fit to our family with their laughter and charm.
After serving in ministry in Iowa for the last eight years, God began to stir something new in our hearts and we are so excited to share that story with you.
By God’s grace, about a year ago, Michael heard one of Darren’s sermons and felt led to reach out to him. Darren responded and invited him to the Empowered conference.
After spending five days in Long Beach for the conference he felt as though The Garden was family he didn’t know we had been missing. All the same things God was stirring in us, He had already begun to put on full display in this church.
As God grew in us a desire to plant a church, we felt like The Garden was the kind of church we’d want to partner with and emulate. We prayed for an opportunity to be trained under the church’s leadership and God answered that prayer.
We are now preparing to move from Cedar Falls, Iowa to Long Beach, California in response to God’s call on our life. We believe he has called our family to head west on an adventure to experience the gift of this residency with plans to ultimately plant a church somewhere in the United States.
We are incredibly humbled and blessed to be a part of the story God is writing and would consider it a privilege and honor for you to partner with us!
