Director, Campus Minister
Todd is originally from Paden City, WV. After earning a B.S. from Marshall University he did what any red blooded American would do and started his own business (with his former Campus Minister). Eventually he decided that his heart was really in campus ministry and he went back to school to earn a Master’s degree from Lipscomb University. After two years as an intern at UK and twelve years as Campus Minister at UT he is proud to serve with the Soma team in Memphis. Leslee is from Portsmouth, OH and attended UK as an undergrad. Todd convinced her to marry him and she moved to Knoxville where she earned a Master’s degree in education from UT and has been an elementary school teacher extraordinaire ever since. She’s the funniest person he knows. He won’t stop talking about the Cleveland Browns.
Crystal grew up in Horse Branch, KY. She received her B.S. in Agriculture Community Development and Leadership from the University of Kentucky, and her M.A. in Communication from Abilene Christian University. She is currently working on her PhD in Communication. Crystal serves as the women's minister at Soma. For fun Crystal enjoys reading and traveling.
Abby is from what many people forget is a state, Vermont. She moved to Memphis in the fall of 2017 and quickly became a core member of the ministry. Because she never leaves, Todd and Crystal decided to make her intern. She's very excited for the new paid responsibilities. She's new, so be nice. When she isn't making Refuge slides or making copies, she's studying for her BA in Early Childhood Education (but like all undergraduate students, that is subject to change).
