Christian Lee

A man who's got a big heart for the city and hailing from the City of Brotherly Love, Christian is the lead pastor of New Philadelphia Church located in Seoul, Korea. The vision of the church is to raise up an army of mighty warriors who will go in the anointing of the Spirit to bind up the brokenhearted and to proclaim freedom for the captives.

Christian is not the typical pastor as he has no seminary degree or ordination. In fact, he studied business at New York University. After graduating and working for a couple years, he answered God's call to full-time ministry with "Korea Campus Crusade for Christ" in NYC. For seven years he served on staff, evangelizing and discipling students, going on missions trips, and doing conference work. In 2008, he was asked to become the lead pastor of New Philadelphia Church in Seoul. Since accepting the position, Christian has solidified the church's vision, identity, and direction, highlighting the apostolic dimension of the church. He believes a church should not only be measured by its seating capacity but by its sending capacity. This emphasis has lit a passion for missions at New Philly, with Pastor Christian having personally served on numerous trips to Kazakhstan, China, Philippines, India, Cambodia, Thailand, and Australia.

Christian's preaching and leadership is marked with boldness and authority. He believes that the purposes of God will only be fulfilled as the church moves into the apostolic. He is known as a minister of fire as multitudes of young people from denominational churches have been baptized by the fire of God through his impartation. He is also a big champion of prayer, sparking prayer movements wherever he ministers.

Christian and Erin reside in Seoul.
