Lee Swor, Senior Pastor
Lee Swor was born in Montgomery, West Virginia in 1952. He graduated from Montgomery High School in 1969. He grew up in Montgomery Baptist Church and was saved at Camp Cowen in 1963. He attended Boomer Baptist Church during his teen years.
Pastor Swor felt God’s call to preach as a teenager while listening to Billy Graham crusade on TV. Through the advice of Pastor James Ford he went to Tennessee
Temple in Chattanooga, TN to prepare for the ministry. It was there that he met his wife Anita. She is from Glen Fork, West Virginia. They were married in 1972 and both graduated from Tennessee Temple University.
Pastor Lee has been in full time ministry since 1975. He pastored Bolt Fundamental Baptist Church from 1975 - 1981. He was pastor of Bible Baptist Church in Belva, W. Va. from 1981 - 1986. He is thankful for the people and experiences in these churches that prepared him for his current ministry. In 1986 he became pastor of Mt. Pleasant. He is grateful for the more than 30 years of ministry God has given him, and for the wonderful people at Mt. Pleasant.
Pastor Lee and Anita are the proud parents of five children. They are grateful for God’s blessings on their marriage and family. Their children are: Lisa Lawrence and her husband James; Michelle Evans and her husband Brian; David and his wife Alycen; Mary Beth Slabbert and her husband Johannes; Sarah Burch and her husband Bryce. Anita, in addition to being a wonderful mother, is an elementary school teacher. Pastor Swor and Anita are also the very proud grandparents of granddaughters Kaitlyn, Madelyn, Avery, Vivienne, Lindsey, Audrey, Victoria and grandsons J.D, Levi, Hendrik, Leland, and Joshua.
Pastor Swor is grateful for the opportunity God has given him to serve as a pastor of Mt. Pleasant.
