Jon R. Lee Named 2004 Alum in Residence

Pastor Jon R. Lee, '66, visited Luther Seminary as this year's Alum in Residence, March 8-12. During his stay, Lee preached in chapel, met students and faculty and participated in a number of selected classes.

Lee is senior pastor of King of Glory Lutheran Church in Dallas. During his 32 years of service the congregation's membership has grown from 400 to more than 2,000 and it has become a regional church with a ministry to the city and its northern suburbs. In addition to leading the congregation, Lee serves on the board of directors at Texas Lutheran College, Dallas Area Community of Churches and the ELCA Board of Pensions. He is a mentor and coach to a number of pastors.

The Alum in Residence program invites alums to share their experiences, insights and expertise with students and discuss the kinds of seminary experiences that were most helpful to them in their work. The program is sponsored by the Luther Seminary Alumni/ae Council.
