Butch Rumble was born in Columbus, Georgia on February 15, 1953. After being a lost church member for many years, Butch was born again at a little United Methodist Church in Lithonia, Georgia on April 1, 1980 (a fitting day for God to save a fool!). After teaching and coaching for seven years at Stone Mountain High School in DeKalb County, the Lord called Butch into ministry in 1982. He served on staff for six years as the youth pastor of Glenwood Hills Baptist Church in Lithonia, Georgia. During those years, he was introduced to the teachings of the Reformed Baptist faith, which he embraces wholeheartedly as biblical truth.

Butch has been the pastor of Rockdale Community Church since its inception in 1994. From 1988 until 2010, he served as the Executive Director of Solid Rock Ministries, an evangelical youth ministry committed to a “no gimmicks” approach to the discipleship of young people. He and his wife Amy were high school sweethearts and were married in 1974. They have two married children, Donna and Ty, two wonderful children-in-law, Brad and Rita, and seven grandchildren – Levi, Evan, Henry, A. J., Natalee, Tori, and Trey.
