Former Mormon Bishop in Jail

Dear Prayer Warriors,

We are asking for fervent prayer for Ex-Mormon Bishop Lee and Kathy Baker right now as yesterday, Lee was required to appear for a “contempt of court” hearing in Indianapolis due to his communication with Mormon leadership that took place as a result of his involvement with the Indiana Mormon Temple opening. After the hearing, Lee was taken into custody with felony and misdemeanor harassment charges.

We’re still trying to sort out all the details of what happened, but briefly,  Lee Baker had some pretty intense interactions with a “General Authority” of the LDS Church and this resulted in harassment charges being filed and a warrant for his arrest being issued. Currently, Lee is in jail awaiting a court-hearing.

We are seeking legal advice and we appreciate your prayer for God to give us guidance on how to support Lee and Kathy Baker through this process.   Donations to their ministry with Witnesses for Jesus can be made by clicking the “Donate” button on the home page of

Former Mormon Bishop Lee Baker - As a member of the Mormon faith for 32 years, having served honorably in many Leadership positions at the Branch, Ward and Stake level, I forced my own excommunication in 2008 after several painful years of meetings and letters to the highest levels of the Mormon Church concerning questions of doctrine and history.
