Empower Ministries

Connecting you with the God of the Bible

Dr. Lee and Jolynn Gugliotto left the full-time pastorate to start Empower Ministries in January 2000. Convinced that Bible study and prayer are the lifeblood of any relationship with God, they equip–enable–empower people to connect with God and stay connected until they are ready to meet their King.

A former teacher of biblical languages with decades of pastoral experience, Lee received a prestigious Gold Medallion from the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association in 1996 for Handbook for Bible Study. Together with his remarkable wife, Jolynn he wages a comprehensive war against anything that would stand in the way of a personal relationship with the Savior.

Countless books and study aids attest to their co-determination to help every believer dig deeply into God’s Word so they can stand on their two scriptural feet. Instead of watered down techniques passed off as Bible study tools by many of today’s churches, they pass on genuine skills to anyone ages 6 and up who wants to communicate directly with God through His Word.


Client Testimonials 

I’ve learned more about Jesus and drawn closer to Him in the past 2 years with you guys, than I have the whole rest of my Christian life.

Hank Baver, Fairfield, CA

I am learning so much! Dr. Lee makes Hebrew simple enough that even I can understand it.

April Turnage, Troy, MT

Dr. Lee packs a lot into every class. I look forward to ordination and using everything I am learning in my ministry.

Lyall Abbott, Vaellejo, CA

The simplicity in which Dr. Lee presents, teaches, and encourages us to study God’s Word is powerful beyond belief. Equipping us to dig into the Bible for ourselves makes us less dependent on anyone other than the Holy Spirit to instruct us.

Aubrey Chevalier, Long Beach, CA
