Tim Lee, Pastor

Rebellious teenager from McLeansboro, Illinois and son of a Baptist minister, fought in violent protest against all ordained authority in both his home and community while repeatedly being spared from more unfortunate consequences by those same elders whom he grew to realize he had given little reason to grant grace.

At nineteen, he joined the Marine Corps, was trained as an infantry engineer, received orders to Quang Nam Province, Vietnam, and sustained an epiphany after an explosion which took his legs on March 8th, 1971— an epiphany through which he found his life’s calling.

After his call to preach in 1973, Tim Lee was a pastor for five years. Since 1979, he has traveled as an evangelist with an uncompromising message; inspiring across all generations, vocations, and social strata of the United States. Tim has received as many as 1,300 invitations to speak in a year, and now annually averages four to five hundred invitations, and 80,000 air miles. Tim also tries to never forget his roots by setting aside the occasional stop for more intimate gatherings in smaller communities.

Today, Tim Lee’s daily habit of enthusiasm and his example as an overcomer inspires from pulpits, in patriotic rallies, at organizational conferences, crusades, public schools, and veteran’s organizations, in the military, on radio and television, in college chapels, and at university commencements. Undaunted by his lack of legs, he has hunted bear in the Alaskan tundra while ambulating only with his hands, he has fished the deep sea, and he rides horseback.

Born on the Fifth of July, Recreated in Vietnam

A story about a wayside, headstrong, and rebellious son of a preacher who becomes a Marine. Tim Lee, born on the fifth of July, never lets himself wallow in self-pity or turn away from God. In fact, losing his legs in Vietnam serves to strengthen his resolve and faith – an actual, real life example that shows the story of the strong and resilient non-whining service members which persevered through their faith in God, and are actually opposite to the character portrayed by Tom Cruise in “Born on the Fourth of July.”
