Life Work

Pastor David Lee is the proud and humble pastor of Guiding Star Baptist Church, a charismatic leader and dynamic preacher. Under his leadership, Guiding Star has grown considerably, not only in numbers but spiritually. The word of God is being preached and has taken root; there is a greater sense of love and commitment, not only for God but for one another.
Pastor Lee desires to bring a relevant word of hope while relaying the uncompromising Word of God. In addition to reaching the lost with the word, his desire is to make disciples of all believers. Through teaching and leading, his mission is to build the Kingdom of God by striving to do all things with a spirit of excellence. Pastor Lee is a strong voice for the disenfranchised and the poor. He is also a leading advocate for the black community. He believes the church can make a difference by working with the community at large to provide the very best witness of Jesus Christ. Along with being a regular guest preacher in other cities and states, Pastor Lee has travel abroad to conduct weekly revivals in Trinidad, Tobago, St Croix, Virgin Island, Toronto, Canada and Monterrey Mexico. His greatest enjoyment in life is serving God, teaching God’s word and encouraging God’s people.
