Pastor Randall Burns and his wife Melanie celebrated their 25th anniversary at the Military Street Baptist Church on Sunday. Pastor Burns is one of the longest tenured ministers in Houlton.  

HOULTON — For the past 25 years, Randall Burns has spread the word of the gospel as the pastor of the Military Street Baptist Church. A celebration of their 25th anniversary with the congregation was held Sunday at the Church on the Hill.

“I came originally as the associate pastor and my wife was the organist,” he said. “I had just been ordained as a minister and our son MacKenzie was just 9 months old when we got the call to come to Houlton. At first, we weren’t interested. We were both thinking something more suburban was for us.”
