About Leslie Swiatocho
Leslie was born into the Christian home of Farrell and Phyllis Osborne. Leslie received Christ at the age of five, and rededicated her life to the Lord in 1984. Leslie graduated from Emmause Christian School in 1986, and continued traveling with her parents for the next twelve years.
Her father, Farrell Osborne, pastored several churches across the country, and in 1984 the Lord took her family into full-time evangelism, preaching and singing at revivals and camp meetings. As a family they recorded many albums and CDs. Leslie and her father have written many songs that have gained recognition in the southern gospel music industry.
In August of 1995 Leslie married Chris Swiatocho of Raleigh, NC. Leslie now lives in Supply, NC where her husband is the senior pastor at Bible Baptist Church. God has blessed them both with 3 beautiful children, Keely, Abby, and son, Shepherd. Besides playing the piano and singing at Bible Baptist, Leslie also teaches the adult ladies Sunday School class called "The Virtuous Women."
In the last few years God has opened many doors for Christ. Leslie sings in various churches, revivals, conferences and camp meetings across the country. Now the doors have been opened specifically for Leslie to speak to women. Leslie is excited to be used by God. As a pastor's wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend, she wants to encourage and empower women everywhere to serve the Lord. “God does not require ability, He wants availability!” says Leslie. Let God use you! Look at how He has used me!
—Luke 1:37 For with God nothing shall be impossible.
Please pray for Leslie and her family as they now venture out into these NEW waters of ministry. Please pray that God will continue to use them in a mighty way! Pray for safety and provision. Pray to be used by God the way He wants.
