Local Zion Assembly Pastor Appointed State Overseer

Wednesday, September 18, 2019

Zion Assembly Church of God conducted its 16th Annual General Assembly and local pastor Anton Burnette was appointed state overseer of Tennessee and Georgia.  Along with this new role, he will continue to pastor the Cleveland church. 

“Brother Burnette has worked faithfully in his role as pastor and will make a great state overseer," Presiding Bishop Wade H. Phillips said. "We have high expectations for the impact he will have on fulfilling the church’s commission in Tennessee and Georgia.

Originally from Dalton, Bishop Burnette has lived and worked in ministry in Cleveland since he was a teen.  Prior to being appointed to state overseer, he served in several ministerial roles including evangelist, pastor, youth pastor, and Christian school administrator.  He has served as pastor of the Cleveland church for two years.  He has earned a Bachelor of Arts in Religion and a Master of Business Administration, he also served four years in the United States Marine Corps.  

Bishop Burnette and his wife, Grace, of 22 years, and their six children, America, Donnie, Victoria, Jonathan, Jacob and Sophia are all looking forward to this opportunity to serve Christ and the church in a great way.  “I am thankful for my wife and local congregation that stands with me as I take on this new role in ministry,” said Bishop Burnette.

“It is my desire to reach everyone in Tennessee and Georgia with the full gospel of Jesus Christ.  To do so, we must start new missions and churches and use innovative ways to take the message of salvation to the lost and the message of the church to other Christians.  We are committed to teach and preach the whole Bible rightly divided, for it is the inspired revelation of God and His will.”

Zion Assembly Church of God headquarters are at 5512 Waterlevel Hwy. Services times are Sunday at 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. and Wednesday at 7 p.m. In depth adult Bible study is scheduled each Sunday morning at 10 a.m., as well as Sunday school for all ages.
