Hello and welcome!
My name is Leslie Buck France; 
I'm the overseer of Saintsalive. 

I've been blessed to live on the beautiful
Outer Banks of NC since June of 1999,
and serve my community as an ordained and credentialed
Christian minister and wedding officiate, since 2002---
now celebrating 20 years of service!

Saintsalive has no walls; I'm a mobile minister!
I travel to serve *couples and families all along the Outer Banks, 
from the island of Ocracoke 
to the 4WD area of Carova.

Scroll down to read how I entered into the specific 'mission field'
of presiding for weddings, and learn of 
other ministerial services I offer---including wedding vow renewals or baby christenings!
(*heterosexual couples; obeying Jesus Christ's instructions recorded in Matthew 19:4-6)          252.722.1107

My Journey...

The road to me becoming an ordained Christian minister began in the Catholic denomination, where I attended church and CCD classes until I graduated from high school.


Fast forward to the year 2000---I made a personal decision to claim Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord, and strive to obey His teachings in all areas of my life.


Shortly after, I began to sense God placing an additional call on my life to enter the surprising

mission field of marrying *couples seeking a

faith based legal marriage ceremony.

I became an (online) ordained and credentialed minister with World Christianship Ministries

in 2002.

(*heterosexual couples; obeying Jesus Christ's instructions in Matthew 19:4-6)

At that time, Saintsalive Ministries (of which the name was conceived in 1993) was finally 'birthed'. In addition to being a music worship minister, and teaching both Sunday School and adult Bible study locally on Hatteras Island, I joined the Outer Banks Wedding Association in 2002 to reach out farther 

to God's people me...had strayed. 

I can't tell you how much of a blessing serving God's people in this way, has been to me!   


In addition to wedding ceremonies, I'm also pleased

to offer other Christian services such as wedding vow 

renewals, baby dedications/christenings, adult baptisms, memorials/life celebrations, and biblical life/marriage coaching!


I'm a current member in good standing of the....
