The Burnt Hickory Counseling Center Is Dedicated to the Memory of Mike Stephens

Pastor Mike Stephens, former senior pastor of Burnt Hickory Baptist Church for over 30 years, dedicated his life to serving his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He deeply loved Jesus and people, and because of this, he gave of his time freely and was always there if someone needed a listening ear or Biblical advice. He spent many hours every week walking alongside people in need of counseling and guidance.

The Burnt Hickory Counseling Center exists as a legacy to Pastor Mike's example of love and care for people. This counseling center is dedicated to and established in memory of Pastor Mike Stephens. May his love for Jesus and people always be the driving force as we continue to minister to individuals and families through counseling.
