ANGIE BURNHAM – Youth Ministry Assistant
Angie was born and raised in Decatur, AL. She attended the University of Alabama where she earned a B.A. in Communications. She has been married to Bill since 1984. Because of Bill’s job, they first moved to Hickory in 1989, but didn’t truly settle here until 2000. Angie and Bill have two grown daughters, Annie and Emma. In her free time, Angie enjoys the beach, the mountains, reading, and playing card games. Her responsibilities at Corinth include supporting the Youth Pastor and College Pastor, overseeing youth Sunday School, helping with college student events, and keeping all of the paperwork and communications for youth, parents of youth, and the college ministry organized. Angie also organizes activities and events for the student pastor as needed. Angie has been with Corinth since 2011.
One of Angie’s favorite passages of Scripture is Matthew 5:13-16 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
