About Us

Pastor Bruce M. Burkett

Bruce was born and raised in Martinsville, Indiana. He recieved his early education in several different settings including public school, home school, and Christian school. On October 15, 1999, at nine years of age he trusted Jesus Christ as his personal Saviour. God began to work in his heart as a young man about serving the Lord in fulltime service as a preacher. In July of 2007, he surrendered to God's calling on his life to become a preacher of the Gospel.

Following God's calling on his life, he enrolled in Bible College to begin training for the ministry. During his sophomore year of college, he transfered to West Coast Baptist College where he completed his college education and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Evangelism.

On June 2, 2012, he married his college sweetheart, Emily, and they began their early ministry together in Smyrna, Tennessee where Pastor Bruce served as a Youth Pastor. On March 6, 2014, God blessed the Burkett family with a baby girl, who they named, Hattie Jane.

In the Spring of 2014, God began to work in his heart about becoming a senior pastor. In June of that same year, he recieved an invitation to come preach at the Lighthouse Baptist Church in Cortez, Colorado. After fulfilling that engagement, and being able to fellowship with the Lighthouse Baptist Church family, God united his heart with that church, and confirmed that he was leading the Burkett family to transition their ministry to Cortez, Colorado. On August 17, 2014, the membership of Lighthouse Baptist Church voted to recieve Pastor Burkett as our new Pastor and has been faithfully serving in this ministry since then.
