Joseph Blakeney Burgess

11/24/1997 - 02/20/2020


Blake’s passion was completing our new sanctuary.
After graduating from Mississippi State and hiring on at the MDOT, Blake chose to give three months of labor 7:30am - 4:30pm to his church building project and was so excited about nearing the completion. Donations to the building in Blake’s honor in lieu of flowers are welcome as a crowning achievement to his vision. We plan to hold the funeral service in the new building in honor of Blake’s example.
