Whitman Gore
A husband and wife team (Ottis and Gail) evangelizing together both in word and song. As a musical duo, Gore Ministries presents a variety of styles such as Praise & Worship, Contemporary, Southern Gospel and traditional hymns. Gail is a songwriter and Ottis has recorded several of her original songs.

As ministers, they are both credentialed in the Church of God, Cleveland, TN, and choose to preach the gospel because of their hunger for souls and their love for God. Bishop Ottis Gore states "Our desire is to see souls saved and be a blessing to the people of God." Gore Ministries has been ministering for approximately 25+ years in different capacities within the church (including Senior Pastor).

Ottis (pronounced 'ah-tis') was born in Wilmington, NC, and attended Pine Valley Church of God while growing up. He excelled in vocal talent both in school and in church.

After marrying and moving to Benson, NC, in 1983, he and wife, Gail, ministered in music and with the youth program at the Benson Church of God. They successfully developed the youth ensemble that won State Teen Talent Competition in 1990. Afterward, Ottis felt the call to pursue credentials as a minister of the Word. He began his first pastorate in Wade, NC, in 1993. Ottis attended Heritage Bible College in Dunn, NC, and received his Bachelor of Religious Studies.

Gail was born in Raleigh, NC, grew up in Benson, and attended Benson Church of God. She was active in the church as the pianist, Sunday School Teacher, Youth Director, and Radio Ministry Broadcast. She traveled with the Whitman Family Singers, which is her family, approximately 20+ years as vocalist and pianist.

Gail pursued her calling as a minister with her husband and is now an Ordained Minister. They both worked together in the venue God has called them.

Currently, Ottis and Gail are members of Praise Fellowship Church of God in Fayetteville, NC.

Ottis and Gail have one son whose name is Cliff. He is a talented drummer and is currently a drummer for his church.
