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

We are so excited to have our new Youth Minister, Patrick McKenney on board.  Our Youth meet on Sunday nights at 6:00 PM, and Wednesday nights at 7:00 PM.  They sometimes have a "lock down" where they spend the night at the church, go out bowling and various activities together.

A message from Patrick:

"I have come here from Salem, VA. I am a graduate from Liberty University and currently in their graduate program. I am passionate about reaching out to the youth as the world is trying to pull them in all directions. I want them to see THE Way. Life Verse: Philippians 4:13. My desire is for students to find that they have a family and a safe place for them in our youth ministry as they seek to follow Christ in all they say and do."

Pray for our youth and for Patrick as he leads our young people.
