Pastors Steven & Patty Lee
Steve and Patty were married in January 1987. They are blessed with two awesome children, Lindsay and Tyler. Grateful for the relationship that God has given them, their greatest enjoyment is spending time with each other.
Steve grew up in Ontario, Canada. As a young teen, he felt God leading him into full time ministry. Steve met Patty at Zion Bible College, in Barrington, Rhode Island. while preparing for ministry. After graduating in 1986, he began his journey into full time ministry as Youth/Associate Pastor in Clifton Park, New York. Upon completing six years as Youth Pastor, God led Steve and Patty to Easthampton, Massachusetts, where they served for eleven years as Senior Pastors. Sensing God moving them in a new direction, in 2004, they relocated across the country to plant a church in Prosper, Texas.
During the past few years, they have had the privilege of seeing the presence of God transform lives and refresh His people. Whether leading as Senior Pastors or supporting other leaders and pastors, Steve and Patty are all about people experiencing God and growing spiritually. In May 2013, they were honored to become the Senior Pastors of Encounter Church. With a desire to bring hope and wholeness to individuals and families, they are excited about what God has in store. Their priority in ministry is creating a place where the presence of God is welcome, the Word of God is preached, and the Spirit of God is allowed to touch His people!
