Meet our Shepherd                                                                


Pastor E.L. Burge, III, began ministry at the younge age of 10. He realized his passion for Christ and was transformed by the gifts and calling over his life. His first assignment was at Pillar of Faith, where he taught Bible study and later became known for his dominant style of praise & worship. After several years of serving at Pillar of Faith, he was released under the covering of Bishop Lawrence W. Boone; one of the founding fathers of Covenant Community Church, where he also taught Bible study. But it was there, that God unveiled him as " A man after God's own heart". A man who was not only willing to learn, but serve. Bishop then raised up a Joshua, and later passed the mantle by ordaining him as Pastor of Covenant Community Church. Pastor Burge believes in serving with a purpose and refuses to miss the mark. He has a passion for people and a desire to help them mature spiritually. He is dedicated to sharing his love for Christ through prophecy, visions and dreams, which he considers "The Whole Man Ministry". He's a devoted husband and father of six, a respected leader throughout the city of Cleveland and a much sought after keynote speaker. Founder of the broadcasting network "The Shepherd's Den" and currently writing his first book "HOLD YOUR POSITION" - A tell all, based on real life events. When asked what were his plans for the body of Christ, he stated: "For the body to really... get to know the Father, to experience Him & have an encounter with God for themselves.

 " And I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding ". - Jeremiah 3:15
