Leonard Bigger e1638609306691

Revd Dr Leonard Onugha


Leonard has previously served in Caversham, Thatcham, and Emmer Green. He says that knowing Christ and learning to walk with him has been an adventure. Being arrested for holding a prayer meeting in one country and serving as a teaching pastor with a church in South East Asia are just some of the journeys his faith has taken him on! Much of his earlier work within ministry was done whilst he held a role with a large energy company. He holds academic qualifications in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, as well as in Theology and Business Management. Leonard has a deep and continuing desire to see the full flourishing of individuals and communities. He is a trustee of The Mustard Tree Foundation, a school governor, an occasional hospital chaplain, and a director of BtN. He is married to Joanna, and they have three children.
