Meet Our Pastor

My name is John Harper, and I've been blessed to serve as pastor of Lees Chapel for nearly 4 years.


Born and raised in Northern Maine, I've spent 37 years of ministry from Texas to Florida and now here in North Carolina. Before coming to Lees Chapel I served as Minister of Pastoral Care at the Advent Christian Village in Dowling Park, FL (a Christian retirement community located on the historic Suwannee River), and I was blessed to serve there for over 22 years.

My wife, Cindy and I have been married for nearly 48 years, and we have three wonderful children, and one adorable granddaughter. We are excited about what God is doing here at Lees Chapel, and  feel right at home serving with these dear folks.

If you're ever passing through Four Oaks, NC (exit 87 on I-95 turn east), or if you already live in Johnston County and are looking for a church home, we'd love for you to stop by for a visit. This is a place where the love of Jesus is shared, and we'd love the opportunity to do just that with you.
