Keith Butler has been an ordained minister since 1974. He is a graduate of the University of Michigan and holds diplomas from Canada Christian College and Rhema Bible Training Center.
He serves in ministry with the support of his lovely wife, Pastor Deborah L. Butler, and their children: Pastor Andre Butler (granddaughters Alexis, Angela, and April), Pastor MiChelle Ferguson and husband Pastor Lee (grandson Lucas), and Minister Kristina Jenkins and husband Pastor Joel (grandsons Andrew and Austin, and granddaughter Alyssa).
Keith Butler Ministries (KBM) is an international ministry established by Keith and Deborah Butler with the goal to advance KBM’s God-given mission of TEACHING the Word, DOING the Work, and TOUCHING the World. We first began this mission in 1979 at Word of Faith International Christian Center in Southfield, Michigan (USA), where Keith and Deborah continue to serve as the senior pastors. Globally, this mission is upheld by the grace of God and through the generous support of our partners and friends.
A large part of our commitment to reach the world with the message of Faith in God is through training others who will fulfill the Great Commission. PISTIS School of Ministry (PSOM) is our Bible training center that was established in 1989 to do exactly that. The program uses a two-year curriculum that is designed to prepare and fully equip ministers to go out and preach the Gospel. The curriculum is structured to develop students in every area that is vital for stability, strength and growth in a ministry. Our Bible training concept includes educational and practical application opportunities in five (5) basic areas: Pastoral, Administrative, Missions, Music, and Helps.
