Pastors & Staff

Andy & stephanie Lee

Senior Pastors

We met at Free Will Baptist Bible College (now Welch College) in Nashville, TN, in 2000. We married in July, 2001, and remained in Nashville for several years. Our sons, Caleb and Jack, were born in Nashville in 2004 and 2007, respectively. In April of 2008, we moved to Southern Illinois to be closer to Andy’s family, and in May of that year, Whiteash selected us as their pastor. We have a deep love for the people of this church, and we thank God every day for the opportunities He has given us to serve this wonderful church body. It has been absolutely amazing to see the wonderful things God has done in and through Whiteash church the last several years, and we can’t wait to see how the church will grow and be used by God in the future. No church is perfect, but Whiteash is a wonderful church to be a part of, and we are blessed to serve as pastors.
