He was licensed on December 29, 1985 under Pastor Edward Kinard at St James Baptist Church in West Columbia, South Carolina.  In April 1986, God called Bishop White to the pastoral ministry.  He received his ordination at the Mt. Hebron Baptist Association under the leadership of Moderator M. E. James.  Bishop White has served as the South Central District Overseer of the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship under the leadership of Presiding Bishop Paul S. Morton.  He also served as the South Carolina State Bishop in The Lord's Churches Fellowship Ministries International, Inc. under the leadership of Presiding Bishop Grant B. Williams.  On August 25, 2018, Bishop White received an Honorary Doctorate in Christian Leadership.  Today he serves with the Father's House of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia, Georgia.


During Bishop White's thirty plus years of service at Zion Hopewell, he has brought the understanding of church ministry to another level in Christ Jesus.  Through his leadership several ministries and auxiliaries within the church has been established, such as Wednesday Noon and Evening Bible Studies, Christian Education, New Opportunities for an Intimate Zion Experience Youth Ministry, Prophetic Development, Total Recovery Ministry, Evangelism Ministry, Marriage Enrichment, Men of Issachar and much more.

Today, Bishop Theotis White has received a clear mandate from God to move from the pastoral anointing and function to embrace the apostolic nature and power.  He believes in laying a foundation for every aspect of the believer's life.
