Lee serves with Biblical Ministries Worldwide sharing the gospel in Mormon communities in Utah. For many years, Lee served as pastor of Payson Bible Church and more recently as the Field Leader for the Utah/Idaho region. Currently his ministry also includes working on field policies, recruiting ministry leaders, preaching, and writing.
His wife and ministry partner, Diana, passed in January 2022 and Lee is adjusting to ministry without her wisdom and communication. We praise God for Lee’s strong faith and his commitment to continue ministry. Pray for Lee and his eight adult children as the family continues to adjust to life without Diana.
As a child my parents took us to a liberal church. My older brother grew restless and sought out a Bible-teaching church. At the age of nine I heard the gospel and approached the pastor about being saved. By God's grace He has held me through days of obedience and rebellion, complacency and devotion. I have been given grace and blessings entirely out of proportion to my sin and dullness.
I studied music at Grand Rapids School of the Bible & Music with primary focus on Bible. I have served in churches in Missouri, California, and Utah. Diana and I were married in 1983 and have eight children.
Diana Jean Whitworth entered the joy set before her on January 8, 2022, after a three-year battle with pancreatic cancer. Please join Grace Community Chapel in praying for Diana's family during this difficult time. The family asks that instead of flowers, charitable gifts would be designated to Provo Bible Church for the church's evangelistic outreach ministry.
