Howard hails from the east coast born and raised in New York. He moved to California in 1993 after graduating from The Pennsylvania State University with a Bachelor of Architectural Engineering. While at Penn State, he accepted Christ as his Savior and was one of the founding fathers in partnership with Campus Crusade for Christ (known today as CRU) of the local AACF (Asian American Christian Fellowship). Howard was a worship leader for over 15 years. Recently, God called him to ministry and so he left the business world to attend the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary where he received a Master of Theology in 2022. Howard has two daughters Kaylee and Katelyn, and survives his late wife, Lucita.
"So I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, as well as a partaker in the glory that is going to be revealed: shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly, as God would have you; not for shameful gain, but eagerly; not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock."
- 1 Peter 5:1-3
