COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Andy Thompson (R-Marietta) was pleased to welcome the Rev. R.J. Leek to the Ohio Statehouse to give the opening prayer during yesterday’s House session. Pastor Leek is the pastor of the Presbyterian Church of Cadiz in Harrison County.


“Our faith leaders help hold our communities together by teaching timeless truths and our need to believe in something greater than ourselves,” said Representative Thompson. “I was honored to have the Rev. Leek give the opening prayer before session.”


Rev. Robert J. Leek is a native of Berea, Ohio. A lifelong Presbyterian he attended The University of Dubuque Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa earning a Masters of Divinity in 1995. In 2008 Rev. Leek answered the call to be the head of staff of The Presbyterian Church of Cadiz, Ohio. The congregation in Cadiz has been worshiping since 1804. This summer, members of the congregation and Rev. Leek will be traveling to Atlanta, Georgia to install wheelchair ramps, put roofs on houses and rebuild porches for the elderly.


During yesterday’s session, Rev. Leek was accompanied by his wife, Trisha, a native of Springfield, Ohio and his three children, Claire, Robbie and Chloe.
