About Us

St Leonard Orthodox Church is a mission church plant (young local church), with an intentional drive to live out our daily lives together as family, in a mutual commitment to discipleship and service.  We believe the Faith of Christ is more than a mere Sunday obligation.  It is a daily invitation to a radical life and love for the Lord and we seek to worship Him by keeping His commandment to Love one another.  We believe Christ has changed our lives forever and calls us to demonstrate our love for Him by covenanting together to love and serve others in His name.  We believe our call to the Great Commission requires us to step outside of ourselves, and our comfort zones daily, shareing the Gospel with a world desperately in need of a savior.

We are glad you dropped by to check us out online. We hope your online experience will give you some idea of our call and passion to love and serve McDowell County. This website was created with guests in mind, so we have tried to get as much basic info as possible on the site so that you will know who we are, what we’re about and meet some of us. If you can’t get your questions answered by browsing the site, email us at office@mcdowellorthodox.org.

If you are moved to join us for Sunday worship, or another event, we will welcome you as a valued guest, inviting you to share in our regular life of worship, prayer and fellowship.  Come and join us as we strive to be the Family of God growing and serving, TOGETHER!
