Our Bishop

Bishop Paul Lee has served as Pastor for 37 years, having been consecrated to the office of Bishop in 2008. His leadership is best characterized by his unequalled compassion for souls, leading to conviction from sin, conversion to a new life in Jesus Christ, and building up of the saints to live consecrated lives, truly set apart for the glory of God the Father.

Bishop Lee is a humble man of God, educated in Baltimore City’s public school system. He attended Virginia Seminary and College, and worked for the Enoch Pratt Free Library as a Serials Specialist for 30 years. In addition to pastoring full time at New Bethlehem, Bishop Lee mentored youth as an Educational Opportunity Program Facilitator in Baltimore City.

He resides in Northeast Baltimore with his wife of 41 years. They have three children and four grandchildren.
