Meet our Staff

Leslie Price, Pastor

OVERSTREET Leslie 6635The Rev. Leslie Kay Price believes in welcoming all God’s children into the church.  Her strong personal faith in God’s grace and Christ’s power of healing, forgiveness, and reconciliation guides her actions and interactions in ministry and life.

She was called to serve Christ Lutheran in 2010, and the congregation has flourished under her leadership.  Her commitment to our mission is evident in the robust worship and music, dynamic education ministry, service to the community, and continuation of our pledge to give 20% of our offerings to benevolence.

Prior to her ministry at Christ Lutheran, Pastor Leslie held several youth ministry positions and an associate pastoral role.  Her academic credentials include a Political Science degree, Valparaiso University, IN; Master of Youth Ministry, Luther Seminary, St. Paul, MN; Master of Divinity, Luther Seminary; Clinical Pastoral Education certification; and internship in a Mexico City squatter community.

Throughout her studies, she says, “I constantly moved toward developing a faith that wasn’t afraid of confronting doubts, challenges, and questions.”  She travels this journey still and invites her congregation to join her.

A native of Kansas, Pastor Leslie honors her Midwestern roots through her integrity and hard work.  She is fluent in Spanish, an avid reader, enjoys creative writing, and is an impassioned advocate for peace and justice. Her elegant soprano singing voice and intelligent, compassionate preaching elevate our worship experience. Leslie also loves getting outdoors, whether running, hiking, or even the occasional bike ride with her cyclist husband, Jayme Brown. Leslie and Jayme both love their dog, Adelaide, who brings so much joy to their lives.

Ryan Loyd, Sound Technician

Ryan is from San Antonio and is in the business of media and content production as a reporter. He has lived in places like Joplin, MO, Sherman, and Austin, TX but seemed to like the friendly charm of the city where he grew up, and so he came back in 2011. Although Ryan was not a Lutheran from birth, he learned (and fell in love with) the Lutheran theology from his awesome wife, Sarah. They met at Texas Lutheran University and have been married since 2006. They have an adorable son, Luke, whose enthusiasm for life inspires them everyday. Ryan loves producing audio at CLC because it enables God’s word to be heard by everyone in church and those who may not be able to attend in person. He makes recordings of the sermons and posts them to CLC’s SoundCloud page, which is linked by the CLC website. He is also involved in the Mulligans men’s group, participates in Faith University on Sunday mornings, and dinner groups. If you’d like to request a past sermon, please leave a message for Ryan at the church office. Generally, only sermons are recorded. So if you’d like to hear a specific part of a service, arrangements for that would be appreciated.
