Black Missionaries Making History – Leon and Melanie Best

Best FamilyLeon and Melanie have been on staff with Campus Crusade for Christ for more than fifteen years. They have four children, Leon Mack (14), Noel (13), Nala (11), Elle (1).

The Bests serve Campus Crusade for Christ-South Africa in the city of Cape Town. Leon is the Western Cape Team Leader of the Western Cape province. He leads a team that develops movements of evangelism and discipleship on campuses and in the communities throughout the province. Leon’s heart is to reach university students with the Gospel. This area is the educational epicenter of the country where over 100,000 collegians reside.

In South Africa the Bests are rebuilding movements and developing leaders for the campus and community. They consider it a privilege to use their gifts and talents to help fulfill the Great Commission.

It was a privilege to meet the Bests and has been a joy to consider them a part of our circle of friends.  Our times of fellowship together serve as great encouragement.
