Rev. Lee and Family

Born on October  7, 1980, at Jang Soo Cheon-Ra North Province, South Korea, Rev. Lee graduated from Korea Nazarene University in 2005 and finished his graduate studies in 2009. In 2012, he was ordained as an elder in the Church of the Nazarene and an associate pastor of Lord’s Garden Church of the Nazarene since 2014. Rev. Lee also served as district NYI president from 2016-2018.

“Rev. Lee was a quiet man but filled with passion to serve God. He was submissive but had a vision. Whenever I had opportunities to talk to him about ministry and our faith, I always learned many things from him. His faithfulness was an example to the other pastors. We will greatly miss him.” Rev. Im, E-Rang, Rev. Lee’s successor as district NYI president shared.
