Pastor Bobby J. Butler

He accepted Christ in his life at an early age and was baptized at Hall Hill Baptist Church by the Late Reverend Speaks. He was ordained as a Deacon in 1981. Upon entering the North Country in 1985, he assisted in establishing Chapel #2 on Fort Drum, New York. Pastor Butler united with Sweet Haven Holy Church of God #3 in 1987, under the leadership of Elder Nathaniel C. Johnson. He accepted "his calling" into Preaching Ministry in 1989. Pastor Butler can recall the very first sermon he preached, title "I've Never Seen A Man Like This man".

In July 1995, Pastor Butler was appointed as Pastor of Sweet Haven Holy Church of God #3, under the leadership of Bishop Nathaniel C. Johnson (with God given wisdom). Pastor Butler's primary concern was and still is to feed the people the Word of God. He has been a positive, spiritual influence in the lives of the members of the Sweet Haven Family and the surrounding community.

Pastor Butler currently holds the position as "Overseer of the Work" in the Holy Churches of God. In addition to his Pastoral duties, Pastor Butler has been employed with the Information Technology Center Fort Drum for the past 17 years, where he is an E-mail Administrator.

We thank God for this "Anointed Man of God" that we have in Pastor Butler. He is a true Man of God, who is filled with the fire and the Holy Ghost. We are even thankful for the "dance" that the Lord has placed in his feet! We thank God for Pastor and First Lady Butler taking on the "charge" to lead the flock at Sweet Haven Holy Church #3. We, the Sweet Haven Family, are truly blessed; and we honor Pastor and First Lady Butler, for they are living examples of the teaching and preaching of God's Word!
