In 2001, Brother Burks attended the first conference in Rockford, Illinois hosted by Reformers Unanimous. He left Rockford with an intense desire to go home to Virginia and reach the addicted within his community. He began a chapter in Virginia shortly after returning home from that conference. His heart was stirred to reach the addicted not only in that community, but also across America. God led him and his family to Rockford, Illinois in 2003, only two years after attending that conference, to become the International Director of the fastest growing addiction ministry in the United States.
Brother Burks is a Bible school graduate and has worked as an Assistant Pastor, Senior Pastor, and Staff Evangelist. He has been in ministry since 1984, and has watched through the years as family, friends, and acquaintances have had their lives wrecked because of the many addictions that Satan uses to destroy lives. He has seen the destruction up close and from afar, and grew tired of watching lives and families destroyed. God has given to him a burden and a tool to help people who are held captive by their addictions and stubborn habits. “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32)
He has used this tool, and seen thousands of lives changed and people set free from their chains of addiction. Reformers Unanimous is a faith based addiction program designed to direct the addicted back to God’s support group—the local church. Brother Burks is now privileged to travel and train others how to help the addicted within their communities. He is available to answer all questions about bring Reformers Unanimous to your community.
