Mr. Amburgey graduated from Liberty in January 1996 with a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Religion with a pastoral ministry emphasis. Over the years he also earned a Master of Arts of Religion (MAR) degree and a Master of Religious Education (MRE) degree both from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary.
He is originally from the great state of Kentucky although Virginia has been his home since coming to Liberty in the spring of 1993. Virginia is a pretty good state as well – well really they love it here!
He married his high school sweetheart, Kathy, when he was 18 – yes that’s right 18! After getting married he followed her to the college she attended for a year before him, Morehead State University (MSU). It was at MSU that he felt the call to ministry and then transferred to Liberty University to train for that calling. He enjoys seeing people grow in their faith. He started working at Liberty in May 2000; one of his duties was to organize College for A Weekend (CFAW). In the fall of 2004 God opened the door for him to teach at Liberty in the Bruckner Learning Center. He enjoys the personal interaction with the students the most. He teaches CLST 100, 101, and 103.
God has blessed his wife and him with three very active boys- Tyler, Tanner, and Turner. All “T” names- that can be hard to keep straight sometimes! He enjoys sports, especially football, and hanging out with his family. He is the varsity boys basketball coach at Temple Christian School in Madison Heights.
He entered into a personal relationship with Jesus when he was 17 years old at a Christian camp in Kentucky. His girlfriend, now his wife, invited him to the camp and it was there that he gave his heart to Jesus. He went as a jealous boyfriend and came back a follower of Jesus. God is so good! He and his family attend Calvary Chapel Lynchburg .
He is a University of Kentucky fan – go Big Blue! Well that’s enough about him. He will leave you with one of his favorite verses: “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” I Corinthians 15:58.
