LESLIE HUNTER: Keynote Speaker

Leslie Hunter was born and raised in the Chicago projects, the oldest of four and son of teen parents and alcoholics. Despite a not-so-easy-childhood, he always found is way to Holy Family Church--a come-as-you-are place that mixed a little bit of high church with a few Amens shouted in the middle of the sermon. At 15 years old, Leslie preached his first sermon. He was supported by his church and mentors, and was hired after high school to be an assisting minister on Sundays while he went to college. He spent the next 20 years there as parish minister and youth pastor, and ran a program called "Boys in the Hood". Boys in this program were ranking gang members who wanted more from life; Leslie put them to work building basketball courts or taking them on excursions throughout the city. Today Leslie works as a chaplain at Holy Family Ministries, 15 minutes down the road from Holy Family Church. And now he has a good relationship with his parents, even calling his mom his hero. His work is who he is--he is a storyteller, a musician, a poet.
