Pastor of Pastoral Care and Internationals

Howard came to faith at the age 13 in a little Missionary Baptist church in Louisville, Mississippi (Rocky Hill). He ran from God’s direction for his life from age 15 – 30. It was at this time that a series of events had turned him back to God. Howard dedicated his life and service to HIM. Since that time he has served as an Assistant Minister at Chapel Grove M.B. Church of Pasadena CA., under Pastor Author K Brown who licensed him into ministry, as an Assistant Pastor for 10 years at First Baptist Rosamond also in California under Pastor Mike Janz, and as Senior Pastor of First Southern Baptist Church North Edwards for the last 11 years. It was there that he was ordained through High Desert Baptist Association of the Antelope Valley. It has always been his desire to serve people and be God’s hands, heart and point of contact to them.
