In January 2018, God called Pastor Cody Burbage and his wife Brandi to move from their home in Charleston SC to start a life-giving church in the heart of Boise, Idaho. On September 15th, 2019 what is just a dream will become a reality. We believe our church will impact generations and ignite them to spread the hope of Jesus like wildfire. From the creative artists to the booming business professionals, Create Church is a haven for all people. Create Church is a place where everyone can come together under the banner of hope in Jesus.
At Create Church, you will experience the unconditional love of God and be equipped to share that love with others. As your love for God and people grow, the impact that you can make is limitless. You will change the world!
But we believe that the Create Church story - and your story too - is just getting started. The greatest days are ahead!
In 2002, Cody was invited by his family to attend a church summer camp in Panama City Beach, FL. As a 16 year old, Cody gave his life to the Lord and realized that being a Christian was not about religion, but that Jesus wanted a personal relationship with him instead. He came back on fire and began serving in a local church immediately by leading worship and teaching bible studies. He started ministries at his high school and began telling everyone about what God had done in his life. Just four months after Cody became a Christ-follower, a new girl started coming to his youth group, Brandi. They started dating and serving the church together. The Burbage's got married in 2006 and continued to serve in ministry. In 2011 they were blessed with their first child, Emilia and then again in 2014 with their son, Brody.
Cody has served in multiple capacities and environments over the last 15 years including leading worship, leading student ministries, writing songs for the church, producing worship albums, training ministry apprentices and interns, being a guest speaker and in his most recent role as an Executive Pastor of Freedom Church in Moncks Corner, SC. He has been apart of two church plants, New Journey Church in 2004 and Freedom Church in 2011. Brandi has been serving as an Executive Assistant at Freedom Church for the last 3 years and loves serving behind the scenes supporting and encouraging her Husband.
