Pastor Timothy Lee, along with his beautiful wife, Sister Kathy Lee, both possess a strong passion to personally minister to each person who visits our congregation. Their respective passions were fueled by their travels during their evangelistic eight-year tour, wherein they visited thirty-three states, and twelve separate countries. They experienced a menagerie of cultures, races, and ethnic groups throughout their tour and witnessed over eight thousand people receive the gift of the Holy Ghost during the revivals they attended, which in turn only helped their collaborated ministry ideals to expand. Similarly, they were afforded the opportunity to preach in some of America’s largest Pentecostal churches, inspiring their vision of a thriving Pentecostal church right here in the fair city of Cape Girardeau, which resulted in The Apostolic Promise (TAP) church of today and of the future.
Pastor Lee obtained a degree in Theology from Liberty University, while Sister Lee acquired her degree in Communication Disorders from Southeast Missouri State University. Pastor and Sister Lee have been blessed with two wonderful children, both of whom are highly involved in different areas within our congregation including Sunday School and Youth ministries. Pastor Lee’s favorite use of his “free time” is to spend quality time with his beloved wife and dear children.
Worship and praise are used biblically to set the stage and to usher in the ever-craved presence of the Holy Ghost before the preaching begins and during the alter call. The adult choir and music department of TAP is headed up by Sister Lee and includes 20+ Praise and Worship singers plus 6 musicians. The music department is also responsible for the developing and performing of dramas, skits, mini-dramas, and cantatas throughout each year, including a special performance given by one member every Sunday night. Also, under the music ministry are our children’s junior choir, and junior and senior sign-language choirs. Sister Lee’s hope for the coming years is to witness the Holy Ghost being poured out at phenomenal levels and allow the supernatural to occur at TAP. To God be the Glory!
Rev. and Mrs. Peters are dedicated to every young soul at TAP Church; they are committed to their success, both in and outside the church environment. Rev. Peters, while in attendance, started a local campus ministry here at SEMO University, wherein they experienced a wonderful harvest of over 80 first-time guests to both church and bible-study sessions, including students from 10 different countries. Of those in attendance, 10 were baptized in Jesus’ name, and 19 received the gift of the Holy Ghost! These personal achievements inspired Brother Peters and his lovely wife to accept the role as Youth Pastor in March of 2017, where their obvious anointing shines and their dedication to the cause of the Kingdom is evident, making us all excited to see what their ministry holds for all in the future!
Brother Peters earned a Bachelor of Science in Cybersecurity, while Brittney earned her degree in Interior Design, both from Southeast Missouri State University.
The souls of all our children and their spiritual guidance and growth are of the utmost priority at TAP church, which is made evident by the enumerable opportunities afforded our children. We possess a qualified and passionate staff of over 30 teachers, aides, and coaches that diligently work with our adolescent souls in order to encourage excellence in all aspects of their young lives! The Christian Education Team provides multiple opportunities to be involved in the highly successful Bible Quiz Program, where our five age-appropriate teams are continuously ranked within the top teams in the state of Missouri. We also offer the chance to join our sign language teams, and many extracurricular activities throughout the year; including camp meetings, Father-Son camping trips, Block Parties, Junior Choir, Field Trips, Picnics, Game Nights, etc.
Jobi’s mother was brought to church as a child through a bus ministry. Her mother's experience has fueled a fire for the Hamptons to reach as many children in Cape Girardeau county as possible. We currently have 7 vans and shuttles bringing “Promise Kids” to church on Sunday mornings and “Wacky Wednesday” services.
The Guest Follow Up ministry is an integral part of making our guests feel comfortable and honored when they visit TAP church. Sister Ladonna Glenn’s team oversees recording the first-time guests. On Monday nights, she has a team that helps her make handmade cards and gift bags that will be given to our first time church visitors during the week and she prays over each one as to what to put on the card.
These are a few of the items that are hand-made, carefully and prayerfully prepared.
Anyone interested in investing your time in this ministry can talk with LaDonna and she can assist you in getting involved as quickly as possible.

Bro. Michael and Sis. Beth are a young couple who feel blessed to call The Apostolic Promise their home church. They've answered the call of the Lord for their lives to fill the leadership role of the Spanish Ministry, which is to reach, teach, and make disciples of the Spanish speaking community in Cape Girardeau, MO. Their vision is to reach the whole community in their language and culture so that they can share and spread the gospel with their loved ones in other cities, states, and even countries. Sis. Beth (Belén in Spanish) grew up in Southern California as the daughter of a Spanish Pastor of a small home missions church of the faith. Bro. Michael grew up in a Pastors home in Southeast Missouri but has always felt a special love and appreciation for the Hispanic peoples. Now, they have joined together with the burden and prayers of The Apostolic Promise Church and hope to fulfill God's will in this ministry.
