Harlan and Betty White decided early in their marriage to commit their lives to the service of Christ. Their Christian dedication and devotion, reinforced by the beckoning of the Holy Spirit, led both of them into full-time ministry of the Gospel.
The Whites chose to affiliate with the prominent Assemblies of God movement where both became duly Licensed Ministers. The Whites then launched into a very effective forty-year career, pastoring, evangelizing, counseling, witnessing and teaching, not to mention rearing three beautiful children along the way. This synergistic partnership resulted in countless souls being led to Christ and multitudes realizing their potential for service in the Kingdom of God. The Whites' track record as bona fide preachers and teachers of the Gospel became widely known and respected throughout the church world.
Betty's teaching experience began in 1954. From the outset, her teaching criteria was based on one fundamental premise - to provide qualified scriptural answers to any question presented. Of course this meant extensive study and hard work on her part. Not surprisingly, God blessed Betty's efforts and her reputation as a Biblical scholar grew proportionally.
After Harlan’s eventual retirement from pastoral work, the Whites settled in the Tulsa area where Betty continued actively teaching in the local church scene. In fact, Betty’s teaching was in such demand, she regularly did double-duty on Sundays, teaching two consecutive Sunday School classes. Midweek often found her back at the lectern giving Biblical guidance to the ladies of the local Church.
In addition to the fundamental teaching aspect of her ministry, Betty has authored articles as a featured writer for the Assemblies of God publication, God's Word for Today and has been a guest speaker at various Bible Conferences, Conventions, Youth Camps, Ladies Groups, and Civic Organizations.
As mentioned on the Recognition page of this site, Betty was named 2003 Oklahoma District Teacher of the Year by the Assemblies of God and given the Billie Davis Award for Excellence in Christian Education.
