Lee Emerson

Lee was born in 1958 in Lincoln. After his family moved south, he attended grammar school in Southampton. After a short spell in the Army, he studied History at Cambridge University, and then went on to train as a teacher at London University. After 20 years in the profession, Lee left teaching to be part of a leadership team of a church in Somerset for four years, before taking up the post of Minister at Scott Drive in 2006.   Lee was converted from a vague belief in God to genuine faith in Christ in 1979 while he was a student, and was baptised at Above Bar Church, Southampton, in 1980. He was awarded the Certificate in Theology from Moore College, Sydney, in 2004, after completing the College’s correspondence course. He is also a lecturer at the Peninsula Gospel Partnership that meets in Plymouth.

Lee’s principal work in the church is to preach and teach the Scriptures, to pray and to pastor the congregation, with the help of the leadership team. His ambition for the church at Scott Drive is to see it grow, as men and women, young and old, come to faith in Jesus Christ, and grow in that faith, so that Christ receives the honour He is due in the hearts of the people who belong to Him.

Lee is married to Annette, and they have two adult children.

New series from 9th February: Jesus's verdict on Jerusalem

You may not have realised it (especially if you have not been here for the whole of the last 10 years!), but since 2010 we have been making our way through Matthew's gospel, starting with The Sermon on the Mount (chs 5-7).
