Howard Dayton is one of the creators of Crown Financial Ministries. I've been blessed to participate in several Crown Ministries programs over the years. In fact, my Crown Group still meets regularly to study, learn, grow, and support each other in life and work.
Howard and I first connected back in 1993 when The On-Purpose Person was first released. I remember having lunch with him and being impressed with his gracious manner, genuine faith, and sense of call upon his life. Here was an on-purpose person par excellence. At the time, I remember Howard's excitement that over 27,000 people that year had participated in the Crown Financial Ministries flagship program: Biblical Financial Study. Today, there are probably 27,000 per week doing this program. It is life transforming. Do this program!
Over the years, Howard and my paths would cross from time to time with chance meetings in airports and such. Wednesday, Howard was the keynote speaker at the stewardship dinner for my church – All Saints Episcopal- Winter Park. We shared a brief reunion. I was delighted to have this photo snapped so I could share it with you. I treasure his leadership and example.
Few of us will ever have the opportunity to transform so many lives. So meet my friend Howard Dayton and give thanks for his life and ministry. By the way, October 7 was his 66th birthday. Happy birthday Howard!
