Dr. Brian Burch started serving Christ as the pastor of Pearisburg FUMC in June 2012. He lives in Pearisburg with DeAnne, his wife of almost 25 years, and their youngest son Zachary who is a senior at Giles High School and a participant in the SW Virgina Governor's School. Michael, their middle son is an Emory Scholar attending Emory University in Atlanta. Matthew, their oldest son is a resident of Blacksburg, getting paid for doing what he loves most: tasting gourmet  food and  working with computers. Samson, our sleepy 13 year old cocker spaniel and Zeus our energetic adopted cat join us in our home. Brian enjoys reading (praising God for large print books and a Kindle), adventure travel (Hawaii is next on our bucket list); and water gardening (via his "portable" 2,000 gallon pond). He holds degrees from Georgia Tech and Asbury Seminary. He has been serving churches in Tennessee, Georgia, and Virginia full-time since 1988.
