ABOUT TIME LEE MINISTRIES
Tim Lee was born and raised in southern Illinois to John and Wanda Lee. His father pastored Southern Baptist Churches for 60 years.
In 1971 while serving in the United States Marine Corps in South Vietnam Tim Lee gave both of his legs to America. Instead of quitting or becoming bitter, Tim allowed God to use this major event in his life to propel him into a ministry that no one could have imagined at that time.
Tim has spent the past 40 years in active ministry as a full time evangelist. He has ministered in 49 states and numerous countries of the world. He has addressed thousands of local churches, Christian schools, civic organizations, colleges and universities as well as hundreds of special patriotic events. Tim Lee is known as the “Legendary Speaker” at MCRD Parris Island, where he speaks to thousands of Marines and Marine Recruits every year.
Also, for 25 years Tim and his family have hosted one of the most exciting teen camps in America called YOUTH ALIVE.
HOW WE HELPED
The greatest door of opportunity for Tim Lee Ministries opened in 2013 when they were invited to go to MCRD Parris Island, SC to have Sunday morning church. They now go 4-5 times a year and have church for almost two hours on Sunday with an average of about 3,000 in attendance.
Tim says, “Each time we go we have a brand new group of recruits and Marines. I give my story and then a clear presentation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Then I give a public invitation for people to come to Christ. A conservative estimate in the 26 events that we have had at Parris Island is that over 27,000 Marines and Marine Recruits have left their seats with tears and brokenness to come and give their hearts and lives to Jesus Christ!”
“It takes a lot of money to put these events together, and I knew our ministry could not financially pay for everything so when Emmaus Road Partners and Hank Parker wanted to come along beside us financially it was a huge answer to prayer.“
“The cost of producing the Sunday events at Parris Island was a major obstacle to an incredible opportunity. The financial help from Emmaus Road Partners and Hank Parker has been a clear answer to prayer. Also, the support and encouragement we receive is immeasurable.
