David Leard

Rev. David Leard is honored to serve on the Foundation Board of Directors  because of Northland’s rich history and its bright future. He and his wife, Kristin, were looking for an academic environment that would provide opportunities to thrive for their two children, Maddie and Jackson. David says, “Being a part of the Northland family has exceeded all of our expectations for excellence, both in the classroom and beyond. Together we are helping to raise the next generation to be faithful to God’s call on their lives.”

David is the Associate Pastor for Discipleship at Northwoods Presbyterian Church. He has served in church ministry for over twenty years with congregations in California, Oklahoma, and now Texas. He was the Director for Family Ministries at Bel Air Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles before serving as the Associate Pastor for Student Ministries at First Presbyterian Church of Edmond, Oklahoma. David holds a Masters of Divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary. 

His favorite Bible verse sums up the good news of the gospel in one short sentence, “We love because God first loved us” 1John 4:19.
