Leon and Melanie Best Jr


Melanie and I have been on staff with Campus Crusade for Christ for 20+ years. We have been blessed with four beautiful children, Leon Mack (20), Noel (18),  Nala (17), Elle (7).

Melanie and I serve  with Cru City where we are helping everyone find their place in God's Story. We are leading a new initiative in Houston. This ministry exists to serve under resourced communities by providing funding, expertise, and people to help them fulfill the Great Commission. We believe that every community is called to help fulfill the Great Commission, and we are committed to providing resources to build Great Commission communities.

There are many under resourced communities in the Greater Houston area today. These communities are often characterized by lack of funding, lack of expertise, and limited access to resources. We can help restore communities that are under-resourced, by building and bridging relationships with the church, businesses, schools and families. We do this by providing funds and expertise to help these communities develop economically, socially, and spiritually.

As a family, we love the Lord and desire to see His Will done in our lives. Our role with Cru City will allow us to see Jesus Christ change lives and revitalize broken communities. We have found Isaiah 58:12 to be so true:

"Your people will rebuild ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwelling."
