Bio - Pastor M.G "Bud" Votaw Born again in February 1969 while in Recruit training with the US Navy, and a Viet Nam Vet, Pastor Bud Votaw, was baptized into the Holy Spirit in 1974 and called to the Ministry. He answered the call to preach in 1983 and was in service to local churches as an itinerating minister.
In 1992 The Lord spoke and said to found a "Prophetic Church for Prophetic Times". A church which is to assist in preparing the Body of Christ for the Lord's return. Rev. Votaw moves prophetically while ministering in his home church, and when ministering in other churches he stands in the office of Prophet.
Called aside by the Lord, he spent years in personal study of the Scriptures, and was practically trained in functions of Ministry under several local pastors. The Holy Ghost has trained Bud in the sensitivity of the Spirit, and to move effectively in the compassion of Christ. An anointing for deliverance and healing is present wherever he ministers, and he preaches the integrity, and the unadulterated Word of God.
He is also a testimony to the power of God himself in the areas of healing and deliverance, having been delivered from the destructive effects of Delayed Stress Syndrome, and agent orange, a toxic causing defoliant used in Viet Nam while he was on duty in 1970-71, he knows full well the scripture in Zechariah 4:6 Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit , says the Lord. His prayer for the Body of Christ is that it comes to the unity of the faith in Christ's love, holiness, and to be the "Glorious Church" the Word says it is. The message preached is the fullness of salvation, with all it entails. The Mission is to see men and women be the vessels of authority they are purposed to be in the word of God,through the spirit of wisdom and revelation this mission is being fulfilled.
Bud and Donna have 3 fine sons who are grown, and know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.
The continued mission by the entire team at Living Faith Family Fellowship is to equip the future ministers of God in their calling; and to extend the growth of any and all prophetically motivated believers into a confident position in the walk of faith.
