It is with great sorrow that I post this notification of the passing of our dear and beloved Apostle/Overseer. Apostle Ottley ordained me as Pastor and was so very instrumental and impactful in our development as Christian Leaders. The impartations that were given to us were vital to our spiritual growth and maturity. You truly led us by example and showed us how to minister to the needs of the people with much love and compassion. You taught us how to work outside the four walls of the church and work in evangelism and outreach to seek and save the lost at whatever cost. Your sweet spirit and wisdom from God that you shared was "sweeter than honey from a honeycomb". I don't know them all but I know the impact that you made on so many of your spiritual sons and daughters christian lives will never be forgotten nor will it be voided as long as we shall live.

I don't have adequate words to express how I and our family feel at this point but I will say this, "To God Be The Glory for a life well lived". Take your Rest Apostle Ottley. We will see you again By-and-By! We love you and will always remember you and the major part you were ordained for our lives always. We are so much the better for our divine connection and I am grateful to God for it. Your spiritual children, James, Karen, and Kayla Smith!💖🙏⛪️


Please keep her husband Bill, children, grandchildren, and other immediate family and friends in your prayers!


Thank you and May God Bless you!
