    His last major pastorate was from 1969-1988 at the large Ninth & O Baptist Church in Louisville, Kentucky. Under his ministry there, the church grew from 2,800 to 4,600 members and baptized 2,823 confessed believers. Ninth & O began a radio ministry that featured his preaching in 1970 and a daily television program beginning in 1972. Ninth & O began seven new churches under Butler's tenure. It also operated a school. Sunday morning services were televised on a Louisville station.[3]
    Under Butler, Ninth & O was one of only two or three conservative congregations within the Southern Baptist denomination in the Louisville metropolitan area. Physically close to the Southern Seminary, Butler challenged the modernist and liberal theology then being taught there. He encouraged conservative students during the height of the Conservative Resurgence movement that began in the latter 1970s. He criticized the seminary professor Dale Moody for Moody's claim that a Christian believer could fall from grace and lose his salvation. When Moody appeared at Ninth & O one Sunday to confront Butler, the latter remained calm and gracious. Butler was involved in wider Southern Baptist life too through a network of conservative pastors who supported the resurgence and known as the Baptist Faith and Message Fellowship.[4]
