About Teleios Ministries

Teleios Ministries was founded by Allan R. Lee in 1986 while serving as Sr. Pastor-teacher of Racine Bible Church, Racine, Wisconsin. Born in Nassau, Bahamas, God impressed upon his heart the need of Bahamians to be trained for “the work of the ministry” without having to necessarily leave their own homeland.

The basic purpose, goals and objectives were jotted down on a piece of paper “in the middle of the night” after Allan was awakened from sleep – he believes – by God. They remain intact even today:

“Teleios is a teaching ministry of Allan R. Lee. Its goal is to realize Colossians 1:28 in the lives of believers in Christ Jesus. Its purpose in so doing is to glorify the Triune God. The means of doing so is the teaching of the Word of God by the enablement of the Holy Spirit to fulfill the following objectives:

  • To equip believers generally for the work of the ministry (Eph. 4:11-16)
  • To equip leaders specifically (1 Tim. 2:2; Eph. 4:11-16)
  • To build strong Christian homes and families (Eph. 5:22-6:4)
  • To proclaim Christ through all media the Lord makes available (Rom. 10:8-15).

Allan’s theological training includes graduation from Moody Bible Institute (Chicago, Il.), Trinity College (BA) and Evangelical Divinity School (M.Div. transf., Deerfield, Il.), Dallas Theological Seminary (Th.M; Th.D. [abd] studies) and doctoral studies at The University of Dallas (Dallas, Tx.) He has served as the Sr. Pastor-teacher of Calvary Bible Church, Nassau Bahamas, since 1992.
