Please join Redwood Teen Challenge and Eureka First Assembly of God for our monthly Monday Night Worship Service featuring Leon Patillo, formerly with Santana!
When Leon was singing with the Latin rock and roll group, Santana, he would look out into the vast crowds of nameless, faceless people filling the auditorium—some coming just to party, some to be entertained, and some because it was the concert to attend. But some, Leon felt, were coming with heavy hearts, questioning their lives and searching for answers. At the height of his pop career with Santana, Leon left the group with a burning desire to satisfy those hungering hearts with music that would make a difference in their lives.
After leaving Santana, he launched a solo career with Word Records and became a one man band where he put together a dazzling, computerized show. He released a string of successful albums and performed in different arenas and coliseums all over the world and had his own television show on TBN called Leon and Friends. Leon sees himself as an encourager—a vessel chosen, to bring joy into the hearts of many people. His concerts are always filled with excitement, humor and inspirational teaching. He crosses all age groups and ethnic boundaries and is a total performer who can sing, dance and motivate.
Leon continues to share the good news through concerts and speaking engagements at different churches, festivals, special functions, fund raisers and conferences.”
