our transitional pastor

Lee Lever (he, him)


Lee Lever began as our three-quarter time interim/transitional pastor in May 2022. In addition to regular pastoral duties, Lee will be helping Houston Mennonite Church clarify identity and vision, and search for a long-term lead pastor.  


Lee brings a wealth of experience in pastoral ministry and organizational savvy to his role at HMC. He has been a pastor, hospital chaplain, regional minister, consultant, and denominational minister. Lee enjoys learning the story of a congregation and helping them find their values and passions as they follow the way of Jesus in ministry and mission. 

In addition to a Master of Divinity from Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary, Lee has a Doctor of Ministry in Congregational Development from Seabury-Western Theological Seminary (Episcopal). His undergraduate degree is from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale in English. He served in the U.S. Army in Vietnam with a logistical unit, an experience that led him to the Mennonite church where he embraced the nonviolent way of Jesus.
