Leilani Miller, Executive Director of Millennia Ministries, has over 15 years of experience teaching and mentoring over 400 women and their children in crisis in how to transition out of their crisis into life with Christ. She has successfully prepared and connected these women and their children from the streets to transitional housing.
Leilani is an excellent inspiring speaker along with being our founder. She has gained valuable wisdom in working with women and their children going through many different crisis: sex trafficked, homeless, drug/alcohol addictions. Her reputation in the work of transitional housing is as one caseworker said, "The women who come from Millennia are always successfully prepared to enter into our transitional housing."

Dave & Jeanna Clausen, our path to Millennia Ministries was by God's grace during a very dark, agonizing time for our family as our daughter struggled with chemical addiction. We were powerless to help her, so instead, we focused on our own recovery by volunteering to help someone else's precious daughter to rebuild her life.
Placing our child in God's powerful hands, He brought the people into her life who helped empower her to find recovery. She will celebrate 3 years of sobriety Jan, 6, 2015. We are profoundly grateful to God and to all who have selflessly given of their time and love when our family needed it most. And to Millennia Ministries for allowing us to return those blessings.
Peggy Murakami, became a Millennia Board Member right when a new phase of Millennia was starting. We called this new phase, "the new baby." Our New Baby first started with the birthing of three real babies of women in crisis, housed the summer of 2013 in Millennia's Worship House. With this New Baby, Millennia has been, and will be able to help "groups of people" to do so much more to help women and families in crisis.
Peggy started out as Leilani's Executive Life Coach before they began working together creating Leilani's authored books under Life With Christ Media. Since then, they have worked on many writing and design projects that have helped others to get involved with women & their children in crisis.
J. Thomas Link, became a Millennia Board Member in 2010 because of his heart for the hurting and the lost. He desires children to be in stable environments which is exactly what Millennia has been doing since 2004, and Tom personally has, since he and his wife Fran of 43 years, adopted four children over 30 years ago.
He's been St.Vincent de Paul Society's Parish Conference President, District Council President and currently the President of Seattle Archdiocesan Council.
He and his wife attend St. John's Mission Catholic Church and Tom volunteers as their Men's Club Volunteer Committee Chair.
Current Ministry Needs
