Author, international speaker, and co-founder of Renovation Church
Before committing his life to pastoral ministry, and civil rights activism, Léonce was a collegiate All-American in wrestling, nearly made the World Team in wrestling, and was a professional football player. The former professional athlete has strong transcultural appeal and connections in the world of professional sports and hip-hop music, as well as church planting and leadership circles. He has been in ordained ministry for nearly 20 years and holds multiple graduate degrees. In 2008 Crump answered God’s call to relocate from Tennessee to Atlanta and begin the process of planting Renovation Church. He details the obstacles he and his family faced and the revelations he uncovered during this process in Renovate: Changing Who You Are by Loving Where You Are. A champion for the Church’s participation in focused and intentional cultural renewal, Crump is the leading voice of a generation committed to operating as God’s redemptive agents on the earth.
