One of the most prolific men of God for this hour, Apostle Butler is a unique man who knows his calling. Not veering from the course that God put him on, the callings that are most evident on him are that of pastor and prophet. Though he is gifted to operate in all facets of the five-fold ministry, it is readily evident that his preeminent calling is that of a pastor. A pastor who holds a prophetic mantle passed on from his former Pastor, the late Bishop Joe G. Sykes. Apostle Butler often uses his gift for the edification of the saints and to God’s glory. He speaks a timely prophetic Word; that ministers greatly to his listeners. He shares the truth of God as God reveals it to him for that appointed time.
