Pastor of the Raeford Evangelical Methodist Church, Raeford, North Carolina.

Pastor Roger and his wife Ann, and family, began their pastorate here in August 2011 after serving faithfully at First Evangelical Methodist Church in Covington, KY.

“When God called me to Raeford, HE did not just call me to this church, but he called my family too.”

Pastor Roger has been in the ministry for seventeen years.  He has served as youth/ children’s pastor, as well as Sr. pastor. He has a passion to preach and teach the Word of God in an applicable way.

“I believe the Word of God is exactly that, the inerrant Word of God.  It applies, and has an answer to every trial we face on this earth.”

Pastor Roger is passionate about getting outside the church walls to Outreach, and be a part of the Community of Raeford.

Pastor Roger is a graduate of Cincinnati Bible College and Seminary in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Interesting note: There are three generations of Burns pastors. Pastor Roger’s father, Rev. Carl Burns ministers in Covington, KY, as well as his son, Pastor Roger Eric Burns II, ministers in Jacksonville, NC.

Pastor Roger’s Life verse,

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
