What is a pastor?

The word “pastor” is misunderstood a lot, but it really just means the man responsible to lead our group the way that God wants us to go. He teaches us from the Bible and encourages us to have closer relationships with God. We encourage you to listen to the sermons we have archived here.

Pastor Lee Whitworth


Pastor Lee Whitworth was raised right here in Utah — a native of Logan. He graduated from Grand Rapids School of the Bible and Music in 1983. He served as a youth pastor in Missouri for two years before joining Biblical Ministries Worldwide, a Christian organization that sends missionaries to various places around the globe. Lee is a fan of St. Louis Cardinals baseball and enjoys spending time in his wood shop.

He helped in the early days of Richfield Bible Church and has been the pastor of Payson Bible Church since 1990. Lee and his wife Diana have seven daughters, one son, and two grandchildren. They live in Santaquin.
