Dr. Leslie Mills went home to be with the Lord July 10,2018. He was born in Dallas, Texas on November 18, 1943 to Albert Lee and Verda Inez Mills. His life’s goal was to live out the great commission to share the gospel throughout the world. God allowed him to do that as he served as pastor to churches in Louisiana, Texas, Indiana and Australia. He also led many mission teams into Mexico to share Gods word and minister to physical needs. God allowed him to see many come to know Jesus as savior in the three crusades he preached in Brazil. His devotion to serving has continued until his health recently required him to step down from the pulpit. Les and Virginia are members of First Baptist Church of Winnsboro.
