Transforming Hearts Ministries

Pastors Leroy and Jeanne Dillon have been bringing people to spiritual and emotional freedom for over 30 years. Through their ministry, couples are being transformed to a deeper level of intimacy than they have ever known. Individuals and families are set free to pursue God's purpose and destiny for their lives. 

Leroy and Jeanne are sought-after Biblical Counselors, helping to identify and resolve personal and marital problems, resulting in freedom and emotional intimacy. Through their unique approach to counseling, they see miracles happen each week. This is accomplished through the healing power of Jesus, repentance, spiritual warfare, and the application of Biblical truth.

Jeanne's heart is to see every woman cherished and set free to walk in her true identity, bringing life to everyone around her. Leroy's desire for men is to see them raised up as successful men and fathers released into their full potential.

Leroy and Jeanne also have a powerful message and ministry to youth, enabling them to resolve past wounds, lies and inner vows, break free from a performance-based mentality, have healed, open-hearted relationships with parents and friends, grow in their desire to know God in a deeper, more personal love relationship, and learn to walk out the Kingdom lifestyle. 

The Dillons have been married for 47 years and have three grown children and six grandchildren. They have had extensive training and study with John Regier of Caring for the Heart Ministries, the International Center for Biblical Counseling, Dr. Joe Allbright Ministries and with the Transformation Center at Bethel Church. They are graduates of the University of Nebraska and Genesis Discipleship Training Center. They served four years with Youth With A Mission (YWAM) in Austria, working in Eastern Europe, followed by 12 years on staff at Genesis Discipleship Training Center, where they taught Bible, counseling, missions and worship. Leroy and Jeanne were founding pastors of Christ-Life Fellowship in Santa Rosa, CA, and ministered there for 13 years. Transforming Hearts Ministries has been birthed out of their commitment to build the foundations of many generations in revival through restoration, healing, and the discipleship of families and individuals. They are located in Redding, CA.

"This ministry is unique on so many levels. The Dillons walk in the love and grace of God for each person they minister to. They live to see people set free to fulfill the destiny and purpose for which God has created them. They are committed to seeing the captives set free and the Spirit of the Lord released in people's lives. I highly recommend their ministry to couples, because it connects them in a way that only God can, and also to singles who want to walk in freedom and the fullness of life in Christ."

"It is amazing to see the fruit of this ministry in the lives of the kids I pastor! I was able to watch God do a miracle, restoring a heart and changing a life forever. Deep wounding was healed as Jesus clearly revealed Himself over and over. My young friend now has a whole heart and the tools in hand to keep it that way."
- Kirsten, Youth Pastor from Santa Rosa, CA


There is only one true God, who is the eternal King, Creator and Redeemer of all that exists. He is perfectly holy, just, loving and truthful. He has revealed Himself to be eternally self-existent - one Being in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

The Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God.

Humankind was created in the image of God to know and enjoy Him, yet we willfully rejected the Lordship and glory of God for which we were intended. Because of this, sickness, death and judgment entered the world, and now creation experiences the effects and consequences of sin.

The Lord Jesus Christ, the one and only Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin, Mary, and is God's Anointed One, empowered by the Holy Spirit to inaugurate God's Kingdom on earth. He was crucified for our sins, died, was buried, resurrected and ascended into heaven, and is now alive today, in the presence of God the Father and in His people. He is "true God" and "true man."

We are saved by God's grace, through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Anyone can be restored to fellowship with God through repenting, believing and receiving Jesus as their Savior and Lord. The Holy Spirit convicts, regenerates, justifies and adopts us as we enter the Kingdom of God as His sons and daughters.

In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live holy and minister supernaturally. The baptism of the Holy Spirit according to Acts 1:4-8 and 2:4 is poured out on believers that they might have power to be witnesses.

The victorious, redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides freedom from the power of the enemy: sin, lies, sickness and torment.

The Church consists of all who put their faith in Jesus Christ. He gave His church the ordinances of Baptism and Communion. The Church exists to carry on the ministry of Jesus Christ and further advance His kingdom by undoing the works of the enemy, preaching and living the good news of God's love, discipling the nations, baptizing and teaching them to love and obey God.

In the ever-increasing government of God and in the Blessed Hope, which is the glorious, visible return of our Lord Jesus Christ for His overcoming bride: His church. Heaven and hell are real places. There will be a resurrection of the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting death.


We are here to love individuals and care for their hearts by helping them identify and resolve spiritual and emotional issues with wisdom from the Word of God and through the power of the Holy Spirit, so that they can be free to fulfill the purpose and destiny for which God has created them.
