Dr. Jim Howard has been involved in pastoral ministry for more than 40 years. He is the founder and president of Spirit of Faith Ministries. He has taught the word of God on numerous local and national radio stations since 1987 and was a regular guest on the Message of Victory TV broadcast in Concord, NC.

He retired from the US Navy as a Master Chief Petty Officer in 1975 and spent 17 years as co-owner of a successful business while also serving in the ministry. He has been a professor at Life Christian University Concord, NC Campus since 2003.

Jim’s first wife Jane died in 2006 after 47 years of marriage. After eight years, the Lord blessed him with a second marriage to Wanda Allman Howard. Together they have 5 children, 12 grandchildren, and 13 great-grandchildren. Both marriages have been as days of heaven upon the earth because of the Blessing of the Lord.

It has been said that “The Spirit of Faith is caught, not taught!” That is, it is not enough to merely hear about faith, you have to walk it out in your day-to-day life, and you have to be around those of “like precious faith” because, as the Scripture tells us, “iron sharpens iron” (Proverbs 27:17).

That is not to imply that the teaching of faith is not important… it certainly is! And that is what Spirit of Faith Ministries and Dr. Howard does… teach and preach the uncompromising Word of Faith message, and live it out day by day. Dr. Howard’s experience of more than 35 plus years in living and teaching the message of faith will help you learn to operate in the “Spirit of Faith!”

“We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak; knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you” (2 Corinthians 4:13, 14).
