He is a licensed Family Wellness Trainer and a member of the National Council on Family Relations. Lee’s current project is the development of the Fuller Institute for Relationship Education (FIRE), which seeks to help congregations create sustainable marriage and relationship education ministries through the low-cost training of volunteer leaders.

Lee has been published in a variety of journals, including Family Process, Family Relations, the Journal of Psychology and Theology, and the Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion. He is the sole or senior author of six books, including three on the lives of clergy and their families. The most recent, coauthored with Kurt Fredrickson, is That Their Work Will Be a Joy, published in 2012.
