Jim Burgen

Jim Burgen is the senior pastor at Flatirons Community Church, a non-denominational evangelical megachurch in Lafayette, Colorado, a northern suburb of Denver, Colorado, USA. The church was started by former pastor, Gil Jones in 2000 with about 200 members, and had grown to around 5000 members by 2004. Burgen inherited the church after Jones left in 2004. The church had grown to around 7,400 members by 2010, and was continuing to grow. Burgen is a graduate of Milligan College and a youth ministry veteran. He was road pastor to Christian bands Audio Adrenaline and the O.C. Supertones, and then director of student ministries at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, Kentucky. He next became associate pastor at Southland Christian Church, Lexington, Kentucky before coming to Flatirons. He attributes the church’s huge growth since being founded to its avoiding the "weirdness of religion" and instead providing a place to heal. He says Flatirons identifies with all people, whoever they are and whatever problems they have, and offers an unconditionally loving and safe place. A favorite phrase when discussing problems is "me too".
