Called to preach at age 18, Dr. Lee Roberson went on to pastor four churches, the most renowned being Highland Park Baptist Church in Chattanooga, Tennessee. After retiring from the pastorate in 1983, he continued to preach all over the country and even the world, preaching for a total of 79 years. He started the Tennessee Temple University to train preachers and full-time Christian workers for the ministry. Along with authoring 45 books and numerous booklets, he also had a hand in starting two mission boards and sending missionaries all over the world. He also started a camp called Camp Joy and the Union Gospel Mission in Georgia. Dr. Roberson went to home to Heaven in 2007 at 97 years old.
