Director of faith-based initiatives for the state of TN to speak to area pastors

CHATTANOOGA — Dr. Monty Burks, director of faith-based Initiatives for the state of Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse, is speaking to area pastors and lay ministers at 9 a.m. on May 20.

The event will take place on the campus of Adult & Teen Challenge MidSouth (ATCM). He is the keynote speaker for the ministry’s 2021 Freedom Gala later that day, but will use the morning to connect with members of the faith-based community with a goal of expanding addiction recovery support services across the state.

“Dr. Burks is actively engaging faith communities and organizations as a means of increasing outreach, educational activities, access, and visibility to people seeking substance abuse services,” says Dr. David McNabb, ATCM president.
