Otis Buell

FROM THE BIOGRAPHCAL HISTORY OF PRIMITIVE OR OLD SCHOOL BAPTIST MINISTERS BY DAVID MONTGOMERY AND MARK GREEN:
_
ELDER OTIS BUELL

WRITTEN BY HIS WIFE, NEETCIE BUELL: Elder Buell was born to Herbert and Caroline Green Buell on January 22, 1940 in Calvin, Kentucky in Bell County. He was the fifth of nine children. Otis graduated from Bell County High School in 1958. He moved to Newport News, Virginia for six months. While there, he joined the Missionary Baptist Church.

The love of God was in Otis' heart from the time he was a child. As a young man Otis didn't believe that he would ever join the Primitive Baptist because he said they prayed the longest, sang the slowest and said the least of anybody he ever knew. At the age of nineteen, he moved to Livonia, Michigan and met his future wife, Neetcie Bernice Wilson. On September 3, 1960, Otis and Neetcie were married in the Pontiac Primitive Baptist Church by Elder Saylor. They adopted a baby girl, and named her Sharon Ethel Buell. In 1989, they adopted a son, and named him Justin Tyler-Otis Buell.

Otis and Neetcie both joined the Pontiac Primitive Baptist Church in Farmington Michigan and were baptized on April 14, 1968 by Elder Robert Mayhorn and Elder Jim Whittington. Otis came out of the water preaching. On June 15,1969, he and his brother-in-law Kenneth Wilson were ordained to the ministry.
He served as Assistant Pastor to Elder Mayhorn from 1972 to 1982 of the Pontiac Church. In October of 1982, he was made Pastor of the Church. In 1984, the church changed the name from Pontiac to Good Shepherd (because of confusion due to a city nearby named Pontiac).

Otis is still in the year 2000 serving as Pastor of the Good Shepherd Church.
