Todd Leonard

Todd Leonard is on a quest to be part of a faith community that is determined to love each other no matter who they are, where they’re from, what they believe, or to what extent they look spiritual. For much of his pastoral ministry, he has focused on creating spiritual environments where young adults and young families could struggle with their faith, worship God meaningfully, and find friendships with others like them. He loves Glendale City Church for its history of innovation and its open and inclusive reputation; and is honored to help this congregation take the next step in its journey. Born in and living until age 10 in rural upstate New York, Todd has also lived in Arizona, Oregon, Georgia, Michigan, and Tennessee. Todd and Robin were married in 1997 and are still in love. Robin was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She is a dental hygienist and received her bachelor’s degree from Loma Linda University. They have three daughters—Halle, Abigail, and Emma—who make life wonderful and terrifying at the same time. Since moving to Los Angeles in 2011, their goal is to take one good vacation every year and explore something new in the American West.
