Former Member of Word Of Faith. I don't know if it is true or not but was quite disturb when I saw his son drop his first name (he now goes by Andre Butler not Keith A. Butler II) and his church is now named Andre Butler Ministeries when it was once a Word of Faith. This may be consistent with the rumor because I believe that this could be the only reason a minister would remove his father's namesake and make his middle name his first. this is one thing that Bishop teached on. Can anyone answer why these changes were made if there is no truth to the rumor?
To Tam,
Andre Butler was my pastor at Faith Christian Center in Atlanta for 5 years and he has always been called Pastor Butler or Andre. That church is still named Faith Christian Center. Additionally, he is still the co-pastor at Word of Faith in Southfield. Even as a child he was called Andre. His separate ministry is named Andre Butler Ministries. I don't think thst is odd or out of the ordinary. He has his own ministry as does one of his sisters. Not unusual at all. They are focusing of a different demographic.

First of all I know first hand that Keith Butler is an arrogant control freak who tries to control everyone he deals with. Most of his ministerial conterparts have ended their fellowship with him. He talks to volunteers as if he was "Masser" and they were "kunta Kentae"; very rude and disrespectful! If he was not guilty of RAPE he should have THREE doctors with DNA and the underaged girl who is an adult now, bring them to his platform and put an end to the rumor. As rapid as people are running away from his church, common sense says address the rumor because that is the reason most have said they were OUT OF THERE! Keith Butler would use his very own mother, let alone his wife and children, to get his selfish needs met! And this ain't something I heard; this is FACT! This selfish, controlling, arrogant pervert needs to be stopped! I know God is forgiving and so am I but this...MAN makes me so angry I can spit!!! By the way...He DID have sex with that minor!
How do you know he had sex with "that minor"? Were you there? Otherwise you could not possibly know what occurred! Your anger makes you appear irrational!

This was started 2 years or more and people are still talking about this. "People of God" why is this still an issue? For those that are trying to destroy Bishop Butler you should leave the judging to God. Have any of you that are judging him ever thought that you are hurting innocent people such as his wife, children and other family members? Of course NOT you just want to be heard. The issue of people leaving his churches is nothing new, people are NOT only leaving WOF churches they are leaving all churches, check the attendance at other churches; maybe God has moved them to a ministry not because of the rumors, but to enlarge them in their walk for Christ. I cannot believe that this is still being talked about with negativity, all of lives have things in them that we surely hope that NO ONE else will discover or have been lied on so well that even we think that it is true. My point is STOP judging and start praying that whatever needs to be change that God will change it, judging only hinders your prayers and we ALL need Blessings from God, I don't know anyone that will say to God I want to keep judging this man and you can keep your Blessings. The body of Christ needs to pray for each other, because Satan is busy trying to destroy the saved folks and the ones that have NOT given their lives to Christ. But I guess it must be true what is said about the black race, that we are like crabs in a barrel, that we DO NOT want to see each prosper in any form. PLEASE START PRAYING THAT GOD WILL DELIVER EVERY ONE OF US THAT NEEDS TO BE DELIVERED, REGARDLESS OF WHAT IT IS FOR. PLEASE LEAVE THIS ALONE!!! GOD IS THE JUDGE NOT MAN!!!!!

REMEMBER THE SABBATH DAY AND KEEP IT HOLY. KEEP MY SABBATHS FOR IT IS A SIGN BETWEEN ME AND THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL THROUGHOUT THEIR GENERATIONS. SO YOU MAY KNOW THAT I AM THE LORD THAT DOTH SANCTIFY YOU. THIS IS WHAT KEITH BUTLER AND ALL OF THE PEOPLE COMMENTING SHOULD KNOW AND DO.

Hey people of God and of the devil, judge not, judge not, judge not. I hope and pray that your secrets in the closet don't come out. Wouldn't it be a hurtful thing. God has blessed my life tremendously through the ministry at Word of Faith through many ministers but especially Bishop Butler. We are all subject to failure because we are human including you who are reading this article. Leave the man of God alone and pray. Just lift him up in prayer. The bible says to pray for those in authoriity over you, therefore members of the church just pray and don't get on the gossip bandwagon. While u r at it pray for the President, the Mayors of your city and all those in authority and especially for the Peace of Jerusalem DAILY and hope and pray that someone is lifting you up in prayer Be blessed and STOP the GOSSIP about the man of God.

It's a Lie, dont you think that he would have been charged with statutory rape? And stop listening to what everyone else is saying? BTW WOF does not have security...lol, they are actual Police officers. And she still goes to WOF and the reason she is not sitting on the front row is because the rumors people like you started about a child. And she doesnt have kids and is still a virgin! Stop with this foolishness. YOU ARE BLOCKING YOUR BLESSINGS!!!

Can't be too close for you to only know "both" his children when he has three. Did you mean "two of his children?"
Guess what? You misread the statement. The rperson said I have watched both his children and his ministry grow. That person was correct. The word both included children and ministry

Has anyone observed that the rumor that people are addressing at this very moment, as if this just recently occurred, dates back to from what I can gather, 2007.

I have read a post from someone stating that a disgruntled employee started the rumor, I have read of someone sitting in a group session hearing a confession. Please people don't comment back to this rumor. It is humorous to see how long a person can keep adding to what they think they know and attempting to keep nothing going. DRAMA.

Is the issue of Bishop Eddie Long placing a label on God's men? AS Bishop TD Jakes said, don't put your mouth on people, just pray.

Let's stop trying to make a 2007 rumor be vibrant and action taking today. Don't crucify Eddie Long today. PRAY CHURCH PRAY. And for those outside of the church, if THERE IS A JUDGEMENT coming forth, remember that it starts at the household of God FIRST, but it won't miss your house either.

My cousin sent me this post,
I am the girl in Question. And this is all a lie. Bishop Butler and Pastor Deborah took me in when my mother (a there Aunt) got sick. THAT'S Right they are my cousin's. A few months later when I went to stay with another family member, this rumor started. It almost destroyed my life. FIRST THINGS FIRST. I 19 today and STILL A VIRGIN (and I plan on staying one until I'M married). MY cousin's took me in and treated me like one of their children. In return they slandered, I am the blame. I ONCE thought that maybe if I were never born this rumor would not have ever started. But because the devil main objective is to kill,steal,and destroy. It would have been something else taring down this Man and Woman of God. THE Bible says touch my anointed and do my prophets no harm. But you are, the lady lying about the group session REPENT. the man lying saying my cousin Andre told you it was true REPENT. Everyone else who are lying and continue to repeat Gossip REPENT. I am 19 and being accused to be the focal point to a terrible RUMOR.

Source from Detroit(?).... wakeup. I have heard lies or rumors about Word of Faith and Bishop Butler for years in Detroit. None were true. Not saying this rumor is not posible... Bishop Butler is a man (not God) he can make mistakes.
However, I attend Word of Faith and some of the mis-information that circulates in Detroit about what goes on at this church have no truth to them. I just get tired of hearing the crep.

We see Bishop Butler has stepped down from the church and lord behold his son has taken over, It seems that GOD only called the entire Butler family to preach his word, or so the Butler family feels. After his major loss in the senate and his child with his lame wife's sisters underaged child, it seem that the membors who worship the Bishop and all caught up in the size of the building have a lot to think about.

HE STEP DOWN from being The Full time Pastor at the Southfield church after being in the ministry for 35 plus years. He is devoting his time to all of his 40 + churches. Now run tell that. It is so true that misery loves company. And you are miserable, and his wife has more lady in her baby toe then you have in your whole body. And her only sisters with daughters were 9 & 10 when this rumor started.

STOP ADDING TO RUMORS.
