Director of Church and University Relations for the State of Michigan
Ted Lee has served in the Office of Church Relations at Olivet Nazarene University for the past two years, with the mission of keeping Olivet connected to local churches across the state of Michigan. His return to Olivet was like a homecoming as he and his wife Bev are both graduates in the class of 1968, serving on the campus in a variety of roles. Dr. Lee was the vice president of institutional advancement at ONU for 24 years, and the district superintendent on the Indianapolis District of the Church of the Nazarene for 16 years prior to taking his current position.
He has been a pastor in Rochester, New York, served in the United States Air Force, and is also a graduate of Nazarene Theological Seminary. His honorary doctorate was bestowed by Olivet to him in 1984. Most admirably, Dr. and Mrs. Lee have been married for 54 years, and they have a heart for the Church and for God’s people.
Outside of traveling for Olivet, Ted and Bev enjoy the warmer months at their home in Indian Lake, Michigan, with their children and grandchildren.
