Cheryl Butler joined Restoration Gateway in December 2018 in the newly created Controller position. Residing in Houston, she had been McAlister Investment Real Estate's accountant for the past 10 years, coordinating internal and external accounting matters for the McAlister companies and family office. Cheryl has a Bachelor of Business Administration degree and a Master of Business Administration degree from Baylor University.
Ed and Cheryl have three grown children: Lauren (Baylor ‘05) and her husband, Tad, have an 8 year old son, Parker. They live in Waco. Jenny (Baylor ‘10) and her husband, Ryan, are currently moving from Austin back to London, UK where their careers have taken them for the second time. Benjamin (Texas A&M ’17) and his wife, Chelsea, currently live in Wichita Falls where he is in pilot training at Sheppard Air Force Base.
With Ed in the oil & gas business, the Butler family moved over the years between different cities in Texas: Houston, Graham, Dallas & then back to Houston. Now in their “empty nest” years Ed & Cheryl have chosen Waco as their ultimate home. Avid water skiers, they purchased a home on the Brazos River five years ago and were weekenders and now God is opening the door for them to be here full time. Both Cheryl & Ed can see that throughout all those changing towns, schools, churches and neighborhoods, there have been some constants that they could count on and Restoration Gateway is one of those! Cheryl and her husband Ed have been blessed to be a part of supporting the Restoration Gateway family for almost a decade. Cheryl & Ed both have a mindset that they have each carried forward from their own parents to influence others for Christ through missions. They believe that when you change the life of a child, you can affect the family, community and world. The best is truly yet to be.
