Lee Allen Jenkins is Founder and Senior Pastor of Eagle’s Nest Church in Roswell, Georgia. As a nationally recognized businessman, best-selling author, speaker and financial advisor, the Lord has been preparing Lee for this assignment his entire life.
Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Lee accepted Christ and was baptized at a young age; but it wasn’t until he was a freshman at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville that he fully committed his life to the Lordship of Jesus Christ and to serving in ministry.
While at UT, Lee was President of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), which, while under his leadership, grew prodigiously, becoming the largest ministry on campus and helping hundreds of students come to know the Lord.
After graduating with a B.A. degree, Lee was drafted by the New York Giants of the National Football League as a defensive back. When his football career was cut short by injuries, Lee entered the music industry, where he served as road manager for the Grammy award-winning gospel group, The Winans. He has also served as business advisor for gospel great, Kirk Franklin.
This led Lee into the financial services industry, where he had a stellar 25-year career and reached the level of Vice President of Investments at two major Wall Street firms. Even today, Lee is still regarded by many as one of the country’s leading financial advisors, educators, and strategists. On Wall Street Magazine in 2003 referred to him as “one of the top financial advisors” in the industry.
As God was using Lee in the business world, he was still very active in ministry on the local church level. Lee served as an elder at two churches over the last twenty-five years. One of them grew from a few hundred people to 5,000 members in only a couple of years.
Additionally, in 2008, Lee was featured on the cover of Gospel Today Magazine as one of ten "New Kingdom Voices", citing his empowering sermons, seminars, books and articles that teach people how to handle money from a biblical perspective.
For almost twenty years, Lee has been in high demand as a teacher and preacher of God’s Word. Small and mega churches alike have benefited immensely from his engaging, biblically sound, insightful, practical and humorous style of presenting the Gospel.
Lastly, Lee - affectionately known as “Pastor Lee” - has been happily married to the love of his life, Martica, for twenty-six years. They have three children: a daughter, Kristin, and two sons, Martin and Ryan.
