In 2007 Samuel Lee went through an important transformation in his ministry. He realized that preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ has nothing to do with prosperity gospel, showmanship, glamour and outward prestige. He realized that the heart of God is with the poor, the suffering. Since then for Samuel Lee, it was not the success of his ministry that counted but serving the people for whom Christ gave His life. Now, Samuel Lee advocates dialogue and fellowship between different Christian denominations and fellowships. Since June 2012, Samuel Lee is the member of the steering committee of the Dutch National Synod, s synod initiated by the Protestant Church of the Netherlands to promote unity, dialogue and discussion among various Church traditions and denominations in the Netherlands.
