John Pate, Associate Pastor — Old Testament Survey
John joined the staff of Burge Terrace as an associate pastor in May 2018. He grew up in South Carolina as one of seven siblings and placed his faith in Christ as a small child. As he grew in his relationship with Jesus, he began to feel a clear desire to serve in the church through a pastoral and teaching role.
In college, John pursued Bible and music training and went on to earn a Master of Divinity in 2018. During this time he served in his local church in the children’s, college, and music ministries.
Pastor John enjoys ministering to others through discipleship, member care, and community outreach.
