Pastor Mike Burgess is a Licensed Local Pastor in the South Carolina United Methodist Conference. His call to serve began at 15, which has grown, strengthened and accumulated throughout his life as God has exposed him to ways in which to serve that compliment his gifts. Serving as a hospice volunteer, to helping restore homes and lives for the disabled and homeless, it has been Matthew 25:31-40 which been the pattern for his life. Inspiring and leading men’s ministry, teaching Sunday school, Disciple classes and Bible Study, and serving in leadership roles within his local church has given him a understanding of most all facets of the church and how it can best serve God and community.
He earned a BBA in Business/Marketing from the University of Georgia and is currently in Course of Studies at Candler School of Theology/ Emory University in Atlanta. Nancy, his wife of 41 years, have been blessed with two children and five grandchildren. Mike is an eternal optimist, knowing that with God’s help the best is yet to come!
