Meet Our Pastor

Pastor Peter FamilyPastor Peter Lee and his wife Eunice SMN lead Worthy Life Baptist Church here in the Washington, D.C. and Baltimore area. Pastor Peter earned his bachelors and masters in EE from MIT, and it was upon graduation from college that Pastor Peter became a Christian, committing his life to the Lord. After working as an engineer for a few years, Pastor Peter went on to pursue a Master of Divinity from Gordon-Conwell Seminary. While studying in seminary, Pastor Peter and Eunice SMN joined Berkland Baptist Church (BBC) in Boston with passionate hearts to serve the Lord. In 1994, after serving a number of years in the college and young adult ministries of BBC (now Antioch Baptist Church), Pastor Peter with Eunice SMN, obeyed God’s call to plant a new church in Los Angeles, CA. This was the first of many moves for them as God led Pastor Peter and his wife to start churches and lead ministries in different cities around the world from New York to Almaty, Kazakhstan and Moscow, Russia.

In the wake of the unthinkable events of September 11, 2001, God gave BBC the vision to start a ministry in our nation’s capital in order to help the healing of this country by reaching young men and women, future leaders, with the light and hope of the gospel. Pastor Peter and his family crossed the globe once again to follow God’s new direction and plant this church in 2002.

Eunice SMN is an encouraging spiritual shepherd for the students and young adults under her care. She is always available to counsel, listen and fellowship with us, ever pointing us toward Christ. For us, Pastor Peter and Eunice SMN set the example of a partnership in Christ as they tirelessly serve God through Worthy Life Baptist Church. They have two children, Margaret and Jeremy, who are both in college. Currently, Pastor Peter is studying in the doctoral program of the Near Eastern Studies Department at The John Hopkins University, focusing on the Old Testament—an endeavor that God has used by His grace to help the start of the Baltimore Chapel.

We hope this gives you a glimpse of our spiritual shepherds and their love for God and for us, their congregation. But the best way to really get to know them is to come to our church and to meet them. We know they’d love to get to know you!
