Leslie Thurman

Children's Music Director

I am blessed to work with the children here at Northwest Bible Church as the MDO Music Director and Children’s Worship Coordinator. Over the last 40 years, I’ve homeschooled my five, now grown, kids, managed my music school, and directed many children’s music programs. Having received a Music Ed degree from SMU, It is a true joy to continue doing what I love.

It was during Vacation Bible School when I was six years old, that I realized Jesus died for me. Growing up in a strong Christian family was a source of great strength, and we also enjoyed singing and performing together. As a teenager, I enjoyed teaching Children’s Home Bible Clubs, as well as attending and counseling for various Bible camps. My passion for music is most realized as I reach children through music and the message of God’s love.

I spend my free time with my kids, their spouses, and best of all, my grandchildren. I love going to the beach and hanging out with my girlfriends. I also collect children’s books and enjoy reading to my grandkids. God has richly blessed me and I rely on Romans 8:28 to remind me that He is always working in my life.
