John P. Kee

Pastor Kee, 15th out of 16 children, was born and raised in Durham, North Carolina. Music and attending church highlighted the family’s weekly activities. John exhibited extraordinary vocal and instrumental talent at an early age. An excellent student, school officials placed John in a special school for the musically gifted children, and he started his musical career at the early age of 14.

John P. Kee moved to Northern California where he studied with brothers Al and Wayne and became a young gifted musician. While living in Northern California he had a chance to meet and play with some of jazz notable greats. In his late teens, John drifted into a street lifestyle that brought him to Charlotte, North Carolina. Once in Charlotte, he moved to the Double Oaks Community and began a life of corruption.

Material possessions no longer offered John any consolation, and the senseless violence that encompassed him became insufferable. So, by his early 20’s, his life was turning around. Giving his life to the Lord at a revival meeting at PTL in Charlotte, John P. Kee returned to the Church. He became very active in church, and in the mid 80’s he started a community choir. This choir, which eventually evolved into the New Life Community Choir achieved rapid success. Albums titled “Wash Me”, and “We Walk By Faith” carried him into the late 80’s with a bang.

In early 1995, John P. Kee released his gold award winning “Show Up” CD, which merely increased his popularity in the music industry. During this time, Pastor Kee was also realizing his call to minister and pastor the New Life Fellowship Church. In early 1995, Bishop Norman Wagner prophesied to Pastor Kee, “Build It and I’ll Come.” “It was on that night that I knew to go forward and build a Fellowship Center, to teach and preach the uncompromising Word of God,” states Pastor Kee.

“So built we the wall…, for the people had a mind to work.” These sentiments of Nehemiah can still be heard echoing in our present Christian society. Pastor Kee expressed, “In my travels throughout the country, ministering to millions, God has shown me a real need that exists in our inner cities. The Lord has given me the vision to build a Christian-focused facility in the ‘New Life Fellowship Center.’ This facility will house programs and launch job opportunities for young people, in order that it might be fruitful to the community. This center will lead in the effort to improve inner city streets and neighborhoods. God delivered me in the inner city from a life that mirrors the ills that we still face today. My heart’s desire is to build the center in the same area where I once was used as a tool for the devil. I am thankful that the Lord has blessed me with the land in that neighborhood, and the Temple Shall Go Up.”

John P. Kee, since 1995, has been pastoring the New Life Fellowship Center full-time. The Fellowship Center is growing rapidly, with ministries that extend into the community. These ministries include after-school tutoring, food for the hungry, Adopt-A-Family, and shelter for the homeless and the elderly. “There is so much hurting and suffering in the world,” says Pastor Kee, “that the only way not to be overwhelmed by it, is to know that you are doing something about it.”
