WITH keynote SPEAKER
rev. alex leighton
The Rev. Alex Leighton is the lead pastor of Bozeman Anglican here in Gallatin Valley. Alex and his wife, Rebecca, and four children, Zeke, Sydney, Titus, and Violet, moved here five years ago, following God’s call here to help start a church that is both sacramental and missional. Bozeman Anglican has roots in the historical tradition of Christianity but as a new church, is aimed at reaching people who feel far from God or who have been disillusioned by previous church experience.
Alex’s calling to a ministry of life began in the womb, as he was born to teenage parents in 1974. When they found out they were pregnant in 1973, just after Roe v. Wade, they were encouraged by their pastor to abort Alex. They didn’t follow that advice and in fact, not only kept Alex but got married and pursued the Lord’s calling to get ordained and lead churches for the last 45 years.
Family ministry has been essential not only to Alex and Rebecca’s formation but to their current calling, namely, to see sons and daughters become fathers and mothers. They desire to see individuals and families rescued and set free, in order for all creation to see the sons and daughters of God revealed (Romans 8:19). They are eager to partner with the churches in the valley as God brings this mission to fruition.
AND SPECIAL GUEST
Dawn Long is a professional actress and adventurous Montana girl, where her home base is. Her journey into film has been nothing but divinely ordered. After a life-changing experience on her first feature film set, a fire was lit in her spirit. In asking God for confirmation of acting, she heard the words “I’m going to use film to change the world.” That was all Dawn needed to hear. It was about her purpose—His purpose. Dawn is most recognized publicly for her numerous local commercials and larger feature films Take Two, Treasure Lies and, most recently, the Kirk Cameron and Kendricks Brothers' theatrically released feature film LIFEMARK. Through her work she desires to inspire, encourage and even deeply provoke people enough to walk away changed for the better. Dawn has also been engaging in public speaking taking the opportunities to contribute the best she can to support life.
