Leah Perera

Ventura County Representative

Originally from the Boston area, Leah participated in her first FCA camp as a camper in 2005 and has been attending or leading every year since. FCA camp has always been her favorite week out of the summer and a foundation for growth in her spiritual life. The ministry of FCA hols a special place in her heart as she is passionate about using sports as a platform to share the gospel. 

Leah graduated from Wheaton College in 2016, where she played on the basketball team. During college, she participated in a local FCA huddle at Wheaton North High School for all four years by leading and mentoring high school girls and coached a high school team her senior year. Through her years of involvement with FCA, she has felt called to pursue full-time ministry and sharing Christ’s love through sports. Leah is excited about her move to California and is working as the Conejo Valley Area Representative for the local high schools and colleges.
