Rev. Leonard A. Roberto 


​Following graduation from Akron Central High School in 1973, I joined the Navy and served 6 years as an Electronics Technician.  During my time in the Navy the three most important events of my life occurred.  I married Robin Hoste, now my wife of 40+ years, the Lord blessed us with a son, and I received Christ as my Savior. He has since blessed us with a total of three sons and seven grandchildren.

Many and varied are the experiences of the past 40 years including running for public office, owning and managing a business for 30 years, and graduating from Elohim Bible Institute having surrendered my life to full time christian service.

Over that time the Lord provided opportunity to use the resources of the business to assist churches, and for 18 years I served as interim pastor in various churches in need of help.

In 2015 The Lord impressed upon my heart to relieve myself of the manufacturing business and seek to minister full time in a church.  I had no idea at the time it would be the church I was attending.  However, the Lord worked out His will in the matter and God has provided the opportunity to minister here at Folsomdale to the people I love most and have known first as friend.
