Senior Pastor

Jeff Burnsed, D.Min

        A military chaplain (0-6), pastor and educator, Pastor Jeff Burnsed is a graduate of Luther Rice Seminary, Liberty University, American Seminary and United States Naval War College (College of Distance Education, Command and Staff Program).  He has served as an officer in both federal and state military, and pastored two churches.

 Personal philosophy:

1)      "I can do all things through Christ which strengthened me" (Phil. 4:13) 

2)      "Call unto me and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not." (Jeremiah 33:3)

3)      "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.? (Jesus Christ, John 15:13)

4)      "...edify one another."  (I Thess 5:11)

5)      "Let danger never turn you aside from the pursuit of honor or the service of your country.  Know that death is inevitable and the fame of virtue immortal.  Let us pray for those who have never known Jesus Christ and redeeming love, for moral forces everywhere...  Let prayer be our passion.  Let prayer be our practice...I am but a poor lost sinner, saved by grace"  (GEN Robert E. Lee)
