Jeff Lee - Senior Pastor
Jeff grew up in New Providence and God used the love of NPPC to shape his faith in Christ. His life was changed forever in a SALT group in high school when he studied 1 John 4:10, "This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins" and embraced the grace of Jesus.
Jeff seeks to help people grow spiritually and emotionally in Christ through learning to trust God more with all aspects of their lives. He earned his Masters of Divinity at Princeton Theological Seminary and has served as a Small Groups Pastor, Discipleship Pastor and Lead Pastor during his 14 years of pastoral leadership. He enjoys planning adventures with his wife, Laurie and their four daughters. He also enjoys running, hiking, intense boot camp workouts, playing guitar, reading and exploring new places.
