About Mitchel

Mitchel is the Lead Pastor of Grace Community Church, a growing multi-ethnic church located between Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, MD. As the son of Korean immigrants, Mitchel grew up in between different worlds, and he has been uniquely called and equipped to be a bridge-builder between the nations and the generations. Mitchel earned his M.Div from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and his M.A. in Exegesis from Wheaton College. His ministry experiences range from preaching and leading ministry in Seoul, South Korea to Maryland, with stops in North Carolina, Virginia, and Chicagoland along the way.

He enjoys connecting over sports, the outdoors, good food, and authentic conversations. He, and his wife, Sarah, have five energetic children, Calvin, Noah, Benjamin, Beatrice, and Owen.

His first book, Even If, is due out in August, and was birthed from the journey of learning to worship God and love others in the chaos of life.

A New Book By Mitchel


How should we respond when life disappoints? When dreams are shattered? Hopes get dashed?

In Even If, Pastor Mitchel Lee reminds us that while God does not offer us a pain-free life, he offers something better: his presence in the pain.

Drawing on his own journey and the examples of others, Mitchel explores the compelling story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in Daniel 3. These three men resolved to worship God even if He didn’t rescue them from the fire. They declared their trust in the goodness of God even if His goodness didn’t show up the way they expected.

With humor and tender encouragement, Mitchel will help you raise your own EVEN IF declaration and encounter the God who is with you in the fire.

NOW Available At these Retailers!

Prophetic, pastoral, and personal in nature, Mitchel Lee has written a WORD for anyone in the valley, the fire, or the desert of spiritual life. What Lee does uniquely is invite the reader to look for God in difficulty, and perhaps more importantly, to determine to worship God, even when we can’t find him.
