Called by God at the age of fourteen, the Reverend Lee Hall-Perkins shares the Gospel through his preaching, writing, and social activism. He received his bachelor’s degree in religious studies and master of divinity from Vanderbilt University. Recognized as a leader on and off-campus, the University awarded Rev. Hall-Perkins the Dorothy Legros Award for Global Vision and Spiritual Leadership. God has opened doors for him to minister in many venues across the United States and most recently in the nations of Israel and South Africa.
In 2011, Rev. Hall-Perkins was ordained as an elder in the Church of God in Christ, but currently serves in the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church. He is the senior pastor of Mt. Zion UMC of Clearwater. Under his leadership, the congregation has acquired new property worth more than 1.5 million dollars and began new ministries.
Before relocating to Florida, Rev. Hall-Perkins served in several ministry capacities in Tennessee. He was the associate pastor of the Living Word International Church in Nashville, Tennessee for six years, the NextGen minister at Gordon Memorial UMC, and an editor at R.H. Boyd Publishing Corporation—one of the country’s oldest African American religious publishers. Rev. Lee is a contributing writer for BlackPast.org and David Cook’s adult Sunday School curriculum. He has also been published in the African American Lectionary.
His partner in life, love, and ministry is the Rev. Jana Hall-Perkins, who is the senior pastor of McCabe United Methodist Church. Together, they are the proud parents of Aniya and the co-editors of Unashamedly Black, Unapologetically Christian: A Devotional for Black Faith and Life.
