The members of Calvary Baptist Church of Jacinto City are a loving, caring group who believe in the Lord Jesus and the Bible. It is our goal to teach the truth and bring hope to all those who come to Calvary.
Pastor Allen Lee was born in Houston Texas on Feb. 9, 1955. He was raised by loving, Christian parents, Don and Mickey Lee and grew up in North Houston. He and his sister, Debra attended church and Sunday School and were active in music in church and school. Allen graduated from Sam Houston High School in 1973, and then attended Sam Houston State University and North Harris County College. He continued in his musical endeavors and was working in a shoe store when he met Vickie Tolison, the girl who would soon become his wife. Their first son, Matthew was born in April of 1978. Allen worked for Harris County, Pct. 4 and Vickie worked for the Yale Hospital and for Aldine ISD.
The Lees joined Harmony Baptist Church in 1985. They were active in music, teaching and various ministries. Allen felt the call to preach while at Harmony and was licensed there. Continuing to work for Harris County during the day, he enrolled in night classes at South Texas Baptist Institute which was later renamed Heritage Baptist Institute, and graduated in 1993. Just a few months before the graduation, the Lees were blessed with their second Son, Caleb.
The Lees traveled to several different churches as Allen filled in for pastors, continuing to study and pray for the Lord's will. In 1995, he answered the call to pastor Calvary and relocated his family to Jacinto City. Pastor Allen Lee considers it a blessing and a great privilege to be the spiritual leader of Calvary.
Caleb graduated from Galena Park High School in 2012 and is very active in the church music program. Like his dad, Caleb plays guitar and sings and also plays piano. He will be continuing to study music theory, piano and voice. Matthew loves family, sports, music and fishing. He is presently studying AC and refrigeration and also welding.
Pastor Lee retired from Harris County in 2005 and Vickie retired from Aldine ISD in 2006. They have been active in the church and the community, and consider it a blessing to be able to serve. Pastor Lee is the Chaplain for the Jacinto City Police Department and also serves on the City Council. In 2005 he was elected Civilian of the Year by the Police Department. He teaches at Grace Bible Institute in Galena Park and is working on His Master's Degree. The Lee's are so happy to know the people of Calvary and Jacinto City and feel blessed that God has led them to so many wonderful people, dear friends and brothers and sisters.
