The Rev Dr Leonard Onugha

All of us at The Mustard Tree were deeply saddened to hear of the death of Revd Dr Leonard Onugha, one of our Trustees.

Leonard said that knowing Christ and learning to walk with him was an adventure – being arrested for holding a prayer meeting in one country and serving as a teaching pastor with a church in South East Asia were just part of the journey his faith has taken him on.

Much of his earlier work within ministry was done whilst he held a role with a large energy company. He held a deep desire to see the full flourishing of individuals and communities, and led a group of three churches.  To read more about Leonard’s work and ministry, click here.

Whether it was through his role as a valued board member, befriending, making bread at the Mustard Tree Vision Day, or working to get A&E Navigators up and running, we all have fond memories of him.  We have valued his gentle wisdom and big heart and he will be missed a lot.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Joanna and three children.
