Burston Sr. and his wife Mary Burston. After a brief illness Pastor Burston found himself laid off from the Maryland Transit Administration where he worked for many years. After working a short time for his brothers record shop God lead him to start Upward Way Church Supply Store. Predictions at that time stated that he would need $200,000 to start a retail store. This did not hinder Pastor Burston from following his dream of owning his own Christian supply store; therefore he took the only money he had $1,500 and through faith in God and hard work he opened his first location in the Oldtown Mall where he remained for 26 years. Upward Way was founded on three principles: strong evangelism, continuous empowerment and enduring faith. The success of Upward Way has been its wonderful customers who have remained faithful patrons for many years. We take pride and joy in providing the highest level of service to our customers.
