Trip Lee

Rapper and pastor William Lee Barfield III, known as Trip Lee.

Meet Trip Lee

Trip was born in Dallas, Texas, to Christian parents and now pastors the church in Dallas he grew up in. Trip and his wife Jess got married young, and have two beautiful children.

We’re excited for you to meet Trip, knowing you will enjoy his humor, his excellent work in the music industry, and the straightforward wisdom with which he articulates God’s Word.

We are so challenged by his depth and perseverance, because this incredibly talented man has endured unrelenting trouble as he suffers from chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). He puts his hope in God, finds his strength in the Lord, and helps us understand how to do the same.

God opened my eyes
to see Jesus
for who he really is.
After I trusted Christ, the
Lord changed my entire
perspective on everything.

People were okay
with me liking Jesus
as long as I didn't
like him enough
to do what he says.

What Is Manolo About?

This song compares the Bible, or the Word of God, to a firearm, defending followers of Jesus from worldly lies and temptations. The word manolo in Spanish means, "God with Us," and is used in the song to celebrate God's presence as our refuge in hard times.

Trip Lee's Passion

One of my passions is helping people understand the Word. I think the most important thing we should be thinking about is who created us and how we were created to live. So I thought that I want to spend a lot of my time actually studying God's Word.

All Rise Up

by Trip Lee

What we do
with our lives every day,
whether at school,
a desk job, or keeping
the home in order,
is our most basic
opportunity to glorify God.

1 Corinthians 10:31 NIV

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

Challenges: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

I would like the secular
world to know that the
Scriptures are about
the things that
we wrestle with every day.
The Scriptures are not ignorant.
Life is really hard.

2 Peter 1:5-7 CSB

For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with goodness, goodness with knowledge, knowledge with self-control, self-control with endurance, endurance with godliness,  godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. 

1 Corinthians 15:57-58 ESV

But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.


Sweet Victory

Defining the God We Wish to Talk About

by Trip Lee

Galatians 2:20 NIV

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Ephesians 5:14-17 NIV

“Wake up, sleeper,
    rise from the dead,
    and Christ will shine on you.”

Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.

Trip Lee's Prayer for You
Dear God,
We come in His name
The slain and risen Who's runnin' this thing
Christ the Lord, the one who can bring
Healin' the hurts of the ones that He claims
We think we got nothin' to gain
By clingin' to Christ the love of the King
But He was under the same
Tempted and hurt He's accustomed to pain
Though they feel it feel it
Pain but their joy can kill it kill it
Feelin' like life been pillaged
Can I please intercede for a minute
This is
Not out of Your grasp
Your grace can shake, Your power can smash
I pray this hour and ask
Allow them to see Your power surpass
That sin devour their past
Drowning with mercy, shower them fast
Give 'em the faith to follow the Father
He's Abba, Your Honor, please swallow the trash

Dear Lord, you were never gone
You promised You'd make 'em forever strong
Your arm isn't short, it is very long
Make 'em like Christ, You get 'em home.
