Rev. Steven L. Howard

Rev. Steven Lamont Howard was born on August 21, 1979 in Shreveport, Louisiana.  He is the eldest son of  Rev. Dr. Walter V. Howard Jr. and Rev. Marion D. Howard. As a third generation preacher he proudly follows in the large footsteps of those that came before him.   Although his birthdate is recorded as August 21, 1979 his true spiritual awakening came when he accepted his call to preach on Sept 12, 1999. He is a seasoned evangelist, a self proclaimed child of the King who preaches and affirms that there is power in the Name of Jesus.

Rev. Steven graduated from Page High Greensboro NC and is a graduate of NCA&T where he majored in Speech Communications. On March 4, 2006, Rev. Steven Howard married the beautiful Rev. Sharrell Howard. They have served in ministry side by side since that time. They have three beautiful children, Samuel James Howard, Sydney Denise Howard, and Silas Alexander Howard. Rev. Steven currently works for Sonic Automotive as an Inventory Analyst in the Retail Trade Division at the Corporate headquarters in Charlotte, NC. 

Rev. Steven has served at Destiny Church in Charlotte, NC since its inception in 2007 under the Leadership of his father and spiritual father Rev. Dr. Walter V. Howard Jr. His goal is to facilitate the spiritual growth and edification of all those affected by his ministry. He lives by these words, Lift Him up by living as a Christian ought, Let the world in you the Savior see; Then men will gladly follow Him Who once taught, “I’ll draw all men unto Me.”
