Leah Esakson

Student Ministry Resident
Journey Students, Residents

Leah is one of our High School Ministry residents! Originally from California, Leah started working at Journey in May 2021 after graduating from Liberty University. “Dustin came up and spoke in a lot of my classes throughout my time there and eventually, I decided to try and interview and now here I am!”


When asked what she loves about Journey, Leah says, “My favorite thing honestly is the relationship’s I’ve been able to build. I’ve connected with a lot of people here on a good level and it’s been super awesome to be able to pour into, as well as be poured into by the people I’ve met. Everyone here is so in love with God and its been awesome to see!”


“If I weren’t in ministry I would probably be doing something in the media/influencer industry, which may be slightly off putting to some, but I love to write, I always wanted to be an author, and I also love graphic design, so I would’ve probably tried to do graphic design work at a big company or something.”
