• Dr Mike & Phyllis Burton | Senior Pastor

    Mike and Phyllis had a vision for Grace Family Church in 2002 after faithfully pastoring another church for 11 years. Their vision is to make church relevant and meaningful for today's audience. Their passion has always been to share God's life changing word and witness the transformation and impact when applied to a person's life.

    Pastor Mike enjoys football and all kinds of sports. His iPod is now full (even though he still can't put songs onto it) of music such as Shane and Shane, Hillsong, Jeremy Camp, and some 70's music! Mike and Phyllis love sharing life together and have four grown children with nine grandchildren. Mike has a Th.D in Theology and a Doctorate of Ministry from Southwest Seminary.
