Family Pastor - Jesse Burris

Jesse is from Haysville. He grew up just south of town and was homeschooled. He also grew up attending First Baptist Haysville and really the only time he was absent from the church was when he went off to college and seminary at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City.


Jesse met his wife, Krys, in youth group at First Baptist and they were married in 2020; they have a young daughter named Piper.


Jesse started filling in with the youth in 2019 while he was finishing up school online, and officially came on staff as the youth pastor in January 2020. In 2023, he stepped into the family pastor position.
