About Dennis Leonard


Heritage Christian Center's Founder & Senior Pastor

If you were to ask Dennis Leonard how Heritage Christian Center came to fruition, he would tell you, “I was just a building contractor who wanted to do something for the Lord.”

Pastor Leonard began fulfilling his call to the ministry in 1985 when he founded Heritage Christian Center in the basement of his home as “simply a Bible study”. Church Growth Today has named Heritage Christian Center, “one of America’s 100 fastest growing churches.” Heritage Christian Center hit its 30-year anniversary mark in 2015; and it is still a fast-paced, multicultural, nondenominational church.

Dennis Leonard is a Colorado native. His parents, businessman and entrepreneur Eugene Leonard and his wife, Pauline, were charitable benefactors in Heritage Christian Center’s humble beginnings. It is to them that their son credits as the source of his own integrity, discipline, and self-reliance.

Dennis Leonard is driven by his desire to assist men and women in their efforts to become and achieve their personal best, no matter their age, socio, economic or cultural background. He sees potential in everyone, and believes that once that potential is tapped, nothing can hold someone back from achieving anything.

Pastor Leonard’s teaching style has been described as, “unique, educational, and uplifting”, often times using memorable illustrations during his sermons.

As a noted author, Dennis Leonard has authored over 15 books, including, “Your Best Days are Still Ahead” and his best sellers, “Happiness Matters” and "Love Matters". Other books include “Don’t Judge My Future By My Past”, “Forgiveness Matters”, “Failure Is Not the End”,  and “Keys to Financial Freedom”.

Dennis Leonard is a frequent conference speaker, and he provides resources for church leaders through his “Chairman’s Network” and the annual “Fire In The Rockies” conference. Dennis can also be watched online 24 hours a day, seven days a week via Livestream.com

He and his wife, Michele, reside in the Denver/Aurora area.
