Pastor Kraig Burleson is a native of Denver, Colorado. Pastor B. and First Lady Autherine, his wife of 30 years, have three children. Like countless others, Pastor Burleson’s life was heavily influenced by the labor and love of Rev. Mother Sidney Adams. He is a charter member of Youth Unlimited Community Christian Club. YU was the ground breaking ministry founded by Mother Adams. Rev. Burleson worked closely with Mother Adams and her beloved husband, Mr. Douglas K. Adams.

He served in many capacities including deacon, trustee, and Bible study teacher. He was later licensed as a gospel preacher and appointed Youth Pastor. Rev. Burleson was ordained in January 1994, following the successful completion of the anointed ecclesiastical curriculum “Called To Preach”, developed and authored by Rev. Sidney Adams, Ph.D. In 1999, when Mother Adams’ health would not allow her to continue as pastor, with the support of Assistant Pastor Rev. Karen R. Cunningham and the blessing of Mother Adams, the church unanimously approved Rev. Kraig Burleson as its new Pastor. He has been serving in this capacity since 1999.
