PastorsPastoral Team

One important element of any church is the pastoral staff and the leadership they provide. The pastors at CMBC spend many hours in studying, praying, fasting, teaching, and serving the church. The pastors, along with board members work together to lead the church in the direction that God wants it to go. Below is a biography on both of our pastors.

Pastor Burge accepted Christ at the age of 16 (through the ministry of the church he has now pastored for 24 years.) He was then married to Kim Hall and they had three children. Kim is the church’s secretary and currently teaches the ladies Sunday school class. After studying God’s Word, Pastor Burge began to teach Sunday School and became the church’s Youth Pastor. His gifts and calling became evident to the church leadership and eventually he became the Associate Pastor and was ordained on Nov. 20, 1988.

He completed his Dissertation entitled, “Developments and Evaluation of a Sermon Preparation and Delivery Class for Laymen.” His love for preaching resulted in his first book titled Preaching with F.I.R.E.’s E.T.A. His most recent book (in the F.I.R.E. series) is Ephesians on F.I.R.E. The series will continue with 1 John on F.I.R.E. followed by Revelation on F.I.R.E. (in two volumes).

Pastor Kenny Burge Jr. is the assistant pastor at Colmar Manor Bible Church and has been serving the church most of his life. While growing up in the church he was able to get a firsthand look at how the church was managed and how he could use his gifts in the church. At the age of 13 he began doing weekly Bible studies for youth in town, as well as helping run the church’s flag football league and other outreaches. As he grew he knew that the Lord had called him to ministry so he began studying.

He graduated from high school at the age of 16 and attended Prince Georges Community College. It was during this time he started a weekly Bible study called “College and Career” in which he taught those who were in college or working – Bible studies such as Bible Survey, Character studies, or topical lessons. He also became a Sunday school teacher devoting many hours a week helping kids from Colmar Manor with tutoring and taking every opportunity to spend time with them to disciple them. He also used his knowledge of technology to build the church a website and upgraded many technical aspects of the church. He used what he had learned about websites by going to Honduras and giving a seminar in which he trained pastors and teenagers how to build a church website. After graduating from PGCC with an A.A.S. and being awarded the schools Computer Information Systems student of the year he went to Washington Bible College.

At this time he began the Colmar Manor Bible Church’s Monday night youth group, and free Tuesday night guitar lessons as an outreach to those in Colmar Manor. During this time he became the worship leader at CMBC. He also created and installed a 3 camera video system in which the sermons at CMBC could be filmed, put online, and shown around the world in order to continue to fill the great commission.

He then transferred to Liberty University, but took online courses so that he could continue serving at CMBC. He graduated with highest honors with a B.A. in Religion/Theology. After this he was ordained, and currently leads the youth group, worship, and web ministries.
