Pastor Eddie Lee and his wife Linda were the founding pastors of Harvest Christian Center. Pastor Lee began pastoral ministry in 1968 in Roswell, New Mexico and pastored churches in Oklahoma and New Mexico. In 1992 he followed the vision and dream for El Paso God placed in his heart in 1971.
Pastor Lee was a shepherding pastor in the truest sense of the definition. He and Linda loved and cared for people and wanted to see them transformed through Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit at work in their lives. They had a heart for the people of the world and Pastor Lee was deeply involved in missions work around the globe from his earliest ministry including traveling to foreign places to teach and encourage native pastors. Linda was a woman of prayer and strong support and confidant to her late husband.
Pastor and Linda would have been married for 60 years in October 2022 but Pastor Lee's untimely death in February 2022 prevented this celebration. They have four grown children, two in ministry and on staff with them now. They have six grand children ranging in ages from 33 to 6, and 3 great-grandchildren! Their grown grandchildren are all followers of Jesus.
Pastor Lee enjoyed running in the desert with his dog, tinkering on old cars and taking Linda to Caliche's in Las Cruces. Linda still enjoys teaching her young grandchildren how to bake. She makes the best apple pie and banana nut bread around.
