His church was of extreme importance his entire life attending Antioch Missionary Baptist Church for almost 80 years. He wore many hats at the church being the church clerk for many decades, mowing the church yard every summer, and going during winter months early on Sunday morning to the church to turn the heat up so the members and visitors would be comfortable. The church was started in his Grandmother’s home and she later served as the musician on the church pump organ when Burl was a little boy.
