Wayne “Al” and Tanya Butler are college sweethearts and will celebrate 24 years of marriage, this November. Wayne is a native of North Augusta, SC and a graduate of North Augusta High School & South Carolina State University. He is the owner and Founder of The Computer Butlers consulting firm. Tanya, a native of Detroit, MI, graduated from Shrine High School and South Carolina State University. She is a professional Photographer and owner of Studio B Photography and Art. She is a former Charlotte Mecklenburg School teacher, who is the current administrator and teacher for The Butler Academy of Excellence in Education (The B.E.E. Academy). The Butlers have over 13 years experience in facilitating marriage workshops and retreats throughout the east coast, for various churches, organizations and within their local ministry.
The Butlers are members of The Living Church in Charlotte, NC where Apostle Ronnie L. Parson Sr. is their Pastor. There, Wayne serves as a Minister, Trustee Board Chairman, and as a Sunday School and Bible Study Teacher. Prior to these positions, Wayne served as Deacon Board Chairman, Head of The Media & Technology Ministry and Recreations Director. Tanya currently serves as a Praise and Worship Leader, Music Dept. President, Sunday School Teacher and as the President of The Pastor’s Aide Committee. Prior, she has served as Sunday School Superintendent, Ministers and Deacons Wives Guild President, Youth Council President and the Teen Chastity Program Director. More than anything, they want to demonstrate God’s power in everything they do.
Outside of the four walls of their church and home, the Butlers seek to be a blessing to the community at large. As a certified Engineer, Architect and Government Chief Information Officer, Wayne serves the Cabarrus County School System as a member of the Advisory Council for Career & Technical Education. Tanya has served her community as the Historian for the Queen City Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, as a Lead Team Member for the Scholars of Grace Home School Co-op, and as a Public Forum Debate Instructor for the Christian Communicators for Christ. Both Wayne & Tanya have also worked with their Greek organizations to serve communities, and have volunteered in, and spearheaded community service projects to assist the homeless, children, and families in need. Their overall goal is to win souls to Christ, using every outlet and opportunity afforded to them.
The Butlers are the proud parents of four phenomenal children whom they have had the privilege of Home Schooling since birth. What started off as a “mission” to offer a unique academic experience, quickly turned into a “vision” to train up well-rounded vessels to fulfill God’s purpose. Their two sons, Tahj and Tylen, are Alumni of their Academy, and are now college students who attend Howard University and Penn State University, respectively. The two daughters, Alanah and Aniah, are entering the 12th and 10th grades and are enrolled in their home school Academy.
The strong desire is to encourage others; marriages, families, parents, men, women, boys and girls, remain at the forefront of their ministry, by God’s anointing. With the guidance of God’s Holy Spirit, their prayer is to impact as many lives as possible and inspire them to live a life of excellence and joy, that is pleasing unto God, so that HIS name may be glorified!
