Pastor Mitch Burke was elected to Midway Baptist on September 8, 2021. His Pastoral ministry began October 1, 2021. He was born and raised in New Tazewell, TN. Blessed with Godly parents, Herbert and Edna Burke, he was raised in church at Springdale Baptist Church, where he professed faith in the Lord Jesus Christ at a young age. He worked in the church there through his youth with the Youth Group and announced his calling to the ministry. After being ordained into the ministry, God placed him at Midway Baptist Church as the Youth Minister in 1997 where he served for 3 years. He met his wife JoAnna in 1998 and married in 2000. She worked with him and the youth before he was called to become pastor at Little Mulberry Baptist Church where he served almost 4 years. He then pastored Tazewell Baptist Church for over 6 years. During his pastoral time, they were blessed with two children Lily and Noah. In September of 2018, they came home to worship at Midway Baptist Church. “Midway Baptist Church and all the members past and present have been a huge part of my ministry, and I am honored to be able to serve as their pastor. I am looking forward to the great and mighty works God has in store for Midway Baptist Church. I want everyone to know my door and phone is always open to whatever you may need.”
