Pastor Lee Seese is a sociable introvert who begins every day and most hours with prayer. He delights in the wondrous simplicity, complexity and completeness of God’s love for each person, the palpable presence of Christ among us, and the movement of the Holy Spirit in people he knows and those he doesn’t. Pastor Lee’s role as husband and father of six, and his passion for coffee, baseball, and poetry are intimately woven into his life and ministry.
