Lee Stillinger, a lifelong South Carolinian, left a profession in graphic design to pursue God’s call into full time ministry back in 1994. Not long thereafter he was introduced to CEF and joined on staff as a volunteer ministry coordinator in a newly formed pioneer local chapter from 1996 to 2001. Then, asked to serve as local director while also providing supporting help for the state office of CEF under the direction of Richard Summerford. In 2007, he joined Richard to serve as assistant state director until August of 2015 when Richard decided to retire from the position. In early 2016, Lee was confirmed by the state board and USA ministries as the new state director for South Carolina. Lee has collaborated with Richard over the years to write and produce board/committee training materials and books now widely used throughout CEF internationally.
He attended Columbia International University with a double major in Biblical Studies and Social & Behavioral Sciences. He also currently serves as an elder and men’s discipleship mentor at his home church in Columbia.
He is married to his best friend, prayer warrior and helpmate, Kimberly. Together they have 8 children and 7 grandchildren.
