Foundational Statement

When Lesley-Anne Leighton first met Jesus, the Lord told her that she was a rough diamond in His Hand, a honed diamond in the making. Diadem in Greek means, ‘crown’. A crown does not have just one diamond, but many diamonds. Like this crown, Diadem International is a multi-faceted ministry.

Isaiah 62:3: “You will be a crown of splendour in the Lord’s hand, a royal diadem in the hand of your God.”


To enable the Bride of Christ to enter her destiny for the glory of God to be seen in all the earth.
