Dr. Burge’s steadfast focus aligns perfectly with CMBC’s mission statement: “Finding the Lost and Training the Found for God’s Glory.”

In addition to his ministry and scholarly pursuits, Pastor Burge is a family man. He accepted Christ at the age of 16, married Kimberly Hall five years later, and they have been blessed with three sons and seven grandchildren.

Born in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, Dr. Burge’s journey led him to Prince George’s County when his family moved to Maryland, and his father became a policeman in DC. At the age of 16, he was saved through the ministry of the church he now pastors. Through a series of events, he was called to the ministry and attended Washington Bible College.

Furthermore, Pastor Burge’s impact extends beyond his congregation as he serves as the president of the Ken J Burge Sr. Foundation. This organization is committed to equipping disadvantaged pastors, missionaries, and teachers worldwide by providing essential resources to help them accurately teach the Word of God. These resources, including his own authored works, serve as a conduit for imparting biblically sound doctrine to those in need.
