About John Howard
After serving the Lord as a pastor for 32 years in 3 churches in northern Manitoba and Barrie, ON, and now in his senior years, John continues to be passionate helping people become followers of Jesus and grow in Him to be the men and women He created them to be. Because of his own history of struggle with same-gender attraction, gender confusion and sexual addiction, John has been able to relate to and help others navigate these issues, as well as people trying to overcome many of life’s hurts, hang-ups and habits. He is a ministry leader with Celebrate Recovery (a biblical, Christ-centered 12-Step Recovery program), and leads a support group for men with unwanted same-gender attraction and addiction issues.
John uses IATW support to help cover his ministry expenses and resources, as well as providing counselling to those who can’t afford regular fees. John and Vicki celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in 2018. They have 3 adult children and 9 grandchildren.
May 2020 UPDATE – We are sad to share that John has lost his battle with cancer and has gone home to be with the Lord. We ask for prayer for Vicki and their children as they grieve the loss of their husband and father. Donations may be made to IATW in memory of John and will be used to continue the work of reaching out to the marginalized around the world.
