Missionary Leslie Vogel

Delia LealAbout Rev. Delia Leal Guatemala

The Rev. Delia Leal, an ordained pastor in the Church of the Nazarene, is currently serving as the pastor of a Baptist congregation (Iglesia Bautista “Luz”) in Cobán, Alta Verapaz, Guatemala. Delia is also the Regional Coordinator for the Women’s Ministry of the Protestant Center for Pastoral Studies in Central America (CEDEPCA). The Women’s Ministry has country coordinators and/or facilitators in Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica. Delia oversees the programs in all five countries and coordinates with all of the responsible personnel and volunteers. She has previously traveled in the U.S., speaking about CEDEPCA efforts to prevent and eradicate violence against women in Guatemala by informing, empowering and accompanying adolescents as well as young and mature adult women. She is an engaging preacher and workshop facilitator who provides biblical-theological reflection and analysis of the situations of violence faced by women, adolescents, children and men in Guatemala.


During her four-week visit in September and October, she will talk about the work that the Presbyterian Church supports and carries out in Guatemala and Central America through CEDEPCA, one of its two mission partners in Guatemala


Leslie VogelAbout Leslie Vogel

As a student at Whitworth College (now University) Leslie participated in an extended study and service experience in Central American that changed her life. After graduation from San Francisco Theological Seminary in 1985, Leslie worked for almost eight years in El Salvador, a portion of this time as a Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) mission co-worker. She also served two years under Presbyterian mission appointment as co-coordinator of the Central America Education Program at Stony Point (N.Y.) Center.

In recent years as her two children, Luz Rebeca and Amando, reached adulthood, Leslie went through a period of vocational discernment that clarified, renewed and strengthened her call.

Leslie sees her new assignment with CEDEPCA focusing on challenges related to poverty and violence, which are among three critical global issues identified by Presbyterian World Mission as priorities.  Leslie is a teaching elder of the Presbytery of the Grand Canyon and is affiliated with Palo Cristi Presbyterian Church in Paradise Valley, Arizona.
