The Butterfield Memorial Foundation is seeking candidates for the position of President.
The Butterfield Memorial Foundation, named after Rev. Ralph and Gladys Butterfield, was founded in 2005 with proceeds from the sale of Oklahoma City’s Deaconess Hospital to a for-profit healthcare network. Affiliated with the Free Methodist Church U.S.A, the Foundation reaches out to our community, manifesting the redeeming love of Christ by focusing on physical, mental, social and spiritual well-being through the dynamic affiliated ministries of Deaconess Pregnancy and Adoption, Open Arms Clinic, and the foundation’s granting and capacity building programs. The Foundation is poised to move into the next phase of growth and vision and seeks a highly qualified, intuitive and self-driven individual to lead the organization forward. More information about the Foundation can be located at

As an affiliated ministry with the FMCUSA the bylaws of the foundation state: “the President of the Butterfield Memorial Foundation is required to be a member in good standing of the Free Methodist church, and to have been such for a significant period of time prior to the posting of the position.”
