GENE . . . was born and raised in Martinsburg, West Virginia where he met and married his preacher's daughter, the former Alice Ring. They have three children: Marc, Robin and Jon (who is with the Lord), and four grandchildren. Brother Gene was saved at the age of nine, called to preach at the age of sixteen and began preaching at age seventeen. By the time he was nineteen and a sophomore in Bible College, he pastored his first full-time church which he served for four years. While there he and his wife yielded their lives to missions. They served in Mexico as missionaries until Gene contracted chronic hepatitis which forced them to return to the United States. During the next twelve years he pastored two great churches. The heartbeat of these churches was soulwinning and worldwide Faith Promise Missions.

In December 1980, he was one of the founding board members of Baptist Missions To Forgotten Peoples, Inc. In May 1983, Dr. Burge resigned the pastorate and became the full-time Executive Director of the board and on June 12, 1997 he was elected President of the organization.

Dr. Burge is engaged in preaching Faith Promise Mission Conferences around the world. He is being greatly used for the Lord in leading the cause of missions throughout the world. Because of his burden and compassionate preaching, Christians are being challenged to do their part in reaching the forgotten of the world with the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ. He and his wife Alice love missionaries. Their heart beat is to encourage missionaries as well as recruit new missionaries. Independent Baptist missionaries around the world call the Burges ''their friends.''
