Pastor Todd Burgess
Todd grew up in First Baptist Church of Eagle River and resided in Alaska for 25 years, graduating from what was then the only high school in Eagle River, Chugiak High School. He married Kathy Wood in 1985, whose family was also members of FBC. They have four sons: Dean (now married to Jessica), Chad, Scott and Luke.
Todd served in the United States Army from 1982 to 1997, during which time he felt the call into ministry. He first served as Minister of Music in churches in Anchorage and Louisiana, was ordained as a deacon while in Louisiana, then ordained in the Gospel Ministry by his church, Sandy Hill Baptist Church in Leesville, LA.
He served as Bi-Vocational Pastor in two churches prior to First Baptist Eagle River: Cotile Baptist Church in Gardener, LA and Big Island Baptist Church in Deville, LA, a cumulative pastoral ministry of 11 years, prior to Alaska.
Todd came to FBC Eagle River as Pastor in 2008. He has since become involved in both the Chugach Baptist Association and the Alaska Baptist Convention. His "heartbeat" is for the Word of God and discipleship of believers, all to the glory of God and God alone.
