Rev. Dr. Otis T. McMillan
Director, Bureau of Evangelism


Otis Thomas McMillan was accepted the call to ministry in 1980 at the Mt. Zion AME Zion Church, Eastover, NC under the Leadership of Rev. Erskin Lowe. He is the product of a long line of preachers. His mother, Rev. Rena Turner McMillan, serves as conference evangelist of the Central NC Conference for more than 35 years. His grandfather, Rev. W.E. Turner serves as a very successful pastor in the Central NC Conference for 54 years. He has two sisters, Rev. Rosa M. Mckoy and Rev. Linda E. Locke serving as pastor in the AME Zion Church.

Rev. W.E Turner, his grandfather was one of his greatest inspirations as far as ministry is concerned. Rev. Turner believed that every true man of God needed five things: Purpose, Perseverance, Preparation, Purity and Piety. He instilled in Dr. McMillan that his great challenge would be “getting people to see themselves.” Dr. McMillan spent countless hours conversing and debating with Rev. Turner. Today, many people who knew Rev. Turner say that Rev. McMillan is just like him.

Rev. McMillan spent several years singing in quartets and other gospel groups before accepting his call to the preaching ministry in 1980. He was ordained a Deacon in the AME Zion Church in 1982, and ordained an Elder in 1984. God has opened many doors for Dr. McMillan to preach the gospel. As a local preacher, he preached 15 to 20 sermons a month. Since 1986, he has preached over 125 sermons per year in many states and around the world. He takes the call to ministry seriously.

Rev. McMillan attended Fayetteville Technical Community College where upon graduation he began a career in the building trade in 1969. In 1993, he earned a Bachelor of Theology Degree from International Seminary, Plymouth Fl. In December 1994, he received a Master of Theology Degree from Christian Bible College, Rocky Mount, NC. In February 1996, He received a Master of Divinity from the Christian Life School of Theology, Columbus, Ga. Then in July 1997, he received a Doctor of Ministry Degree from Christian Life School of Theology, Columbus, Ga.

He has served the following churches during his 28 years of pastoral ministry: Chapel Grove AMEZ, Little Marsh Chapel AMEZ, Freedom Chapel AMEZ, Franklin Chapel AMEZ and the Bethel AME Zion Church. Each church has experienced exception growth numerically, physically, financially and spiritually. Over the years, many renovations, innovations, and more than 35 local preachers has been left as a testimony to the goodness of God and the productivity of the ministry of Dr. and Mrs. McMillan.
