Lee died at his home in Newmarket, Ontario on January 28, 2017, at the age of 92. Having compassionately guided the denomination though the gay ordination debate of 1988, his impact within the United Church is still widely felt.
After his term as Moderator was finished, Lee went on to become the Chancellor of Victoria College at the University of Toronto, holding that position from 1992 until 1998.
As Moderator, Lee was the voice of the isolated and oppressed, tackling issues relating to the ordination of homosexual persons, racial equality, indigenous and other human rights issues. He also continued to work to build bridges between the church and the Korean and other immigrant communities in Canada. The marriage of his daughter, which Lee himself performed, was the first inter-racial marriage performed in the United Church of Canada and opened the door to the acceptance of inter-racial marriages in the Canadian Christian community. In 1989, Lee was named Rainbow Chief of the All Native Circle Conference and became an honoured member.
Lee accepted a call to a Japanese congregation in Vancouver, British Columbia and immigrated to Canada with his family in 1965. This was a largely immigrant congregation and Lee’s ministry became one of creating a welcoming community of faith for new Asian immigrants to Canada. It was during this time that Canadian immigration policies were changing and it was becoming easier for Asians to both immigrate to and remain in Canada as landed immigrants. It was for this reason that Lee himself settled in Canada and was able to strengthen the United Church’s ministry to new immigrants. After serving in Vancouver for four years, in 1969, Lee moved to Toronto and became enmeshed in social justice and equality there, beginning with his own Korean congregation, which he served for twenty years, and reaching out to champion justice for all the marginalized and disadvantaged in society.
Sang Chul Lee (February 29, 1924 – January 28, 2017) was the 32nd Moderator of the United Church of Canada and the first person of Asian descent to hold the position. He was elected by the 32nd General Council of the United Church of Canada at their meeting in Victoria, British Columbia. He was married and had three daughters.
Lee was born in 1924 to Korean immigrant parents in Siberia during the reign of Joseph Stalin. At the age of seven, his family moved to Japanese-occupied Manchuria, where he attended a mission high school operated by Canadian missionaries, and against the wishes of his parents – who were devout Shamans – he converted to Christianity. After World War II, Lee moved to South Korea. Lee saw Christianity as a way to cope with the brutality he had experienced in both Manchuria and Korea and was particularly enthralled with the Exodus story of Moses and the Israelites. He received theological education in South Korea, Switzerland and Canada.
The United Church of Canada had inherited overseas missions in Asia from their founding denominations, who established the Korean mission in 1893. The United Church maintained this mission after church union in 1925 and it blossomed into a vital and growing community of faith. This was how Lee became exposed to Christianity and he was ordained as a minister of the United Church of Canada in 1954, remaining in South Korea to serve their overseas mission there.
