JOHN & HELEN BURNS
John and Helen are the Founding and Teaching Pastors at Relate Church. They planted the church in 1986, after John left his prosperous dental practice to become a full time pastor. John and Helen have seen the faithfulness of God as their own broken marriage has been restored, and they speak with wisdom and authority on building healthy relationships. They are passionate about church and equipping the next generation to live life well.
John and Helen have celebrated 44 years of marriage and have raised three daughters. They take great joy in their eight grandchildren.
