LEESBURG, VA, October 24, 2019. Tree of Life hosted a Ribbon Cutting ceremony at the Leesburg Junction on 215 Depot Ct. SE in Leesburg to celebrate the opening of their new Leesburg Center.

Paul and his team shared the Tree of Life vision and mission, which is to serve the poor and needy with the love of Jesus Christ in our community. He recapped the story of how Tree of Life began in 2008 and has been operating from Crossroads Baptist Church in Leesburg since 2015. “The opening of a Leesburg Center gives us a daily presence in Leesburg; we will also continue to offer ministry activities at Crossroads Baptist Church,” Paul stated.
