POSITION: Assistant Pastor
PASTOR LEE has served in pastoral ministry for over 50 years. He is the founding Pastor of our congregation here at New Hope Christian Center. Following God’s direction, in the summer of 1992, he moved from Beaverton, Oregon where he was serving as the Senior Pastor of Aloha Christian Life Center. During his 18 years of ministry at Aloha Christian Life Center he was also active in the Oregon District of the Assemblies of God as an Executive Presbyter for the State of Oregon and a Presbyter over-seeing 24 churches in the Portland area. Pastor Lee’s pastoral journey began by attending Northwest College and then on to Hillsboro Oregon, Harlan Oregon, Coeur d’ Alene Idaho, Pinehurst Idaho, Spokane Washington, back to Beaverton Oregon and then here at New Hope Christian Center.
Pastor Lee has faithfully and lovingly served God in all of the ministry opportunities that mark the lives of pastors. He is known and loved as a man of vision and purpose and has endeared himself to many of God’s people wherever he has served. He is always ready and willing to pray for anyone in need should a crisis or illness arise or simply to join with them in prayer for encouragement or direction in their life. He has been known to arrive ahead of some at the hospital on their surgery day, waiting to pray with them before surgery!
He loves golf, fishing, camping and a mean game of pool. He enjoys sports and can be seen cheering on his favorites, the Seattle Seahawks and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Pastor Lee is married to Donnella, his wife of 51 years, and is the father of 4 children. He delights in his 11 grandchildren and boasts of 1 great-grandchild with another one arriving in November.
