Bro. Harold Smith Missionary To Churches In Need

Harold Smith became Lee Creek’s sixth pastor in 2007. In 2012 he held the first Preachers of Grace conference as a way of encouraging fellowship among like minded preachers. As this conference grew, a ministry to equip pastor-less churches also began. As the years went by, he spent more and more of his time working with other pastors and churches. In 2021 brother Harold stepped down as pastor to pursue this ministry full time. Lee Creek continues to support this work while he and his wife Missy, as well their two adult children, are still active members at Lee Creek.
