Rev. O.B. Winkley is the son of the late Rev. Otis Winkley, Sr. and Myra Winkley Thomas. He is married to the former Janet (Lee) Miles of Waco, Texas, and together they have three adult children and three grandchildren.
Rev. Winkley attended the Kilgore Public Schools and Bishop College in Dallas, Texas. He received his Bachelor and Master of Theology degrees from the American International Bible Seminary in Killeen, Texas.
The Atlanta, Texas native accepted his call to the ministry in 1976 at the age of 21. Six months later, he accepted the pastorship at New Home Baptist Church in Overton, Texas. Over the past 29 years, he has pastored four other churches. To this congregation's delight, Rev. Winkley accepted the call as Pastor of Antioch Missionary Baptist Church in August, 2005. We are inspired by his in-depth preaching and teaching of the Word and his humorous parables.
Pastor Winkley is considered a noted gospel preacher, teacher and pastor, whose reputation as a leader in his church and personal life is second to none. Pastor Winkley has held many board and advisory committee positions. He has also worked diligently with the NAACP and the Boy Scouts of America.
Pastor Otis Winkley's primary goals in life are to win souls for Jesus Christ and to teach the Body of Christ through discipleship training. He aspires to be the best husband, father and pastor God would have him be. Pastor Winkley believes that in doing these few things well, not only will he be blessed, but he will also be in keeping with God's will.
