Lesa R. Willis is a vibrant, life-loving, adventurous, Christian woman who has worked in several areas that range from being a Network Design Engineer and Manager, to being a Bicycle Messenger in our Nation's Capital.

 

She is currently completing a Master’s degree in Family Counseling and Religious Studies and is an English teacher in the Dallas Independent School District. Lesa is most proud of her service and accomplishments in the United States Navy and will quickly and gladly share one of many "O Woe is Me" stories about Boot camp!

Sister Lesa was baptized into the Kingdom nearly 35 years ago, while serving in the United States Navy and stationed in Washington, DC, and has remained a faithful member. That first year doesn’t count! 

 

Presently, she attends the Church of Christ on Greenville Avenue in Richardson, TX. Her chosen ministries include: Ladies Wednesday Night Bible Class Teacher and working with the Annual Adolescent and Ladies Symposium as a Presider, and the Visitation Ministry.

Lesa's favorite passage in the Bible is Psalm 139; it is to her, a beautiful love story of God's protection, knowledge and love. She is very happily married to Joel Willis and they have four children: Richard, Nina, Aja (Ah-jah) and Omni (Om-nee). They have four grandsons: Boston, Sean, Ethan, and Ayden. Lesa warns others that she has MANY, MANY pictures and can pull them up "in the wink of an eye!" Her hobbies include: reading, telling the corniest of jokes, fishing, hanging out with her Hubby, and playing with her grandsons.
