Leon and Tina Longard

Leon currently serves as the North American Director for Communitas. In this role, he has the privilege of working with a great team that shares in the vision of reimaging how faith communities engage in their context to bring the tangible goodness of God to the lives of those around them. Before this, he led teams in Indianapolis, IN, that focused on addressing the issue of homelessness in various ways. This included serving as an outreach advocate for a local ministry serving those living in encampments around the city and starting Circle City Village, a team working to build the first tiny house village in Indianapolis for people transitioning from homelessness. Diakonos Community, the faith community he led, worked with low-income apartment buildings where those transitioning out of homelessness were moved to help build community among residents and provide spiritual formation opportunities for those who desired it.
