It All Began . . .

Keith Butler has served in the ministry for over 40 years. Answering the call of God on his life at a young age, he and his lovely wife, Deborah, started Word of Faith Christian Center in January 1979. Services were held in a small, storefront building in Detroit, Michigan (USA). Starting with just 10 people in attendance, including Keith and his wife Deborah, Word of Faith quickly grew. By 1998, Word of Faith had 20,000 plus members with Keith Butler as its pastor. Currently, Word of Faith Int'l Christian Center is located on 110 pristine acres in Southfield, Michigan (USA). International was added to the church's name in preparation for the future world-wide ministry work that would come and is now here through KBM.

Pastor Timothy Ramsay

Pastor Timothy L. Ramsay is a man anointed and called to teach and preach the unadulterated Word of God. He is a firm believer that when the word is taught in its fullness, it has the power to change and transform lives.

He gave his life to the Lord at the age of 19 and began to recognise that there was a pastoral calling on his life. He understood the importance of preparation for the call and sought out further education. God instructed him to attend Word Of Faith Bible Training Centre from which he graduated in 2003.

The school was set up by Bishop Keith A. Butler, founder of Word Of Faith International Christian Centre, Michigan, USA. Bishop Butler later planted a church in the centre of London to be a beacon that Jesus Christ is still alive and that the Word of God still has power. The Spirit Of God later instructed Bishop Butler to appoint Timothy Ramsay to continue what God started through him – To Teach the Word, Do The Work and Touch The World.

Pastor Timothy Ramsay serves with his lovely wife Minister Adwoa as Senior Pastor at Word of Faith International Christian Centre, London and executive Pastor of Word of Faith in Birmingham.

Pastor and Minister Ramsay are also devoted parents to their three children: Timmika, Shiloh and Josiah and enjoy spending time with them above all else. They are also the grandparents to Lylaa-Rose

Pastor Timothy Ramsay's heart is to teach people what the Word of God has to say about how we are to live our lives while continuing to express his genuine love for both the people of God and his ministry to God.
