Rev. Pee has pastored the Friendship Missionary Baptist Church for thirty-seven years. His leadership led to the construction of a new church edifice, with a mortgage paid off in five and one-half years. A Family Life Center addition to the present structure enlarged the facility. Friendship’s membership has grown tremendously with Christian Education as the central focus of the church body. Rev. Pee established several ministries to meet the needs of the church membership and to reach the surrounding communities.
