Reverand Joel Burton


During a Sunday night service, while Preacher Jay Blankenship preached on hell, the Lord spoke to my heart, telling me I needed to be saved.

Since that time, I have experienced many mountain tops and struggled thru many valleys, yet the Lord never once failed to always be right by my side. I know this to be true-the Lord will never leave us nor forsake us! The Lord called me into ministry and I started pastoring in 1992.

I am blessed with a wonderful family—godly parents and in-laws, a great wife, two amazing daughters, and six of the best grandkids any Poppy could ever have! My coming to WKJV/WKJW is a great blessing. I am humbly blessed to be involved in such an amazing ministry that broadcasts the good news of Jesus Christ our Lord. Jeremiah recorded these words of our Lord-“Is not my word like as a fire? saith the Lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?”(Jeremiah 23:29 KJV).

God’s Word is powerful and sharp; “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12 KJV)



I was saved when I was five years old.  My family and I have been members at Pleasant Valley Baptist Church in Yancey County with Pastor Jimbo Seaton for as long as I can remember.  I started playing the guitar and singing when I was 12.  Then at 13 years old I was called to preach.  Just doing what I can to serve God, which now includes the ministry the Lord blessed me with here at the King’s Radio!
