Reverend E. Carl Howard has decades of experience in the Pentecostal & Evangelical faith backgrounds. He served First Congregational Church of West Haven in the capacities of bridge and supply Pastor since November 2014, and he was the Associate Pastor of Dunbar Congregational Church, Hamden, Connecticut, from June of 2017 until his current call as settled Senior Pastor of this great church.
Carl is a graduate of Yale Divinity and the recipient of several Master's degrees from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. Taking seriously the charge of the Resurrected Christ for all Believers to share their faith, Carl does so boldly and enthusiastically via the gifts of Pastoring, Teaching, and Evangelism. Carl unashamedly encourages everyone he communicates with to consider the goodness of our God and for them to prayerfully consider that there is a tremendous blessing associated with them having a personal relationship with Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior, regardless of gender, cultural backgrounds, and socioeconomic status. Carl’s passion is for the church of the living God to be vibrant and lively as we engage the world with the liberating power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Carl also has active interests in the martial arts, physical fitness, guitar, the application of biblical concepts to law and advance debt management strategies. Carl’s coined motto:
“Look what Love, done; done™”
is reflective of his theology that God can change and touch the lives of ANY PERSON for the better if they would only believe that Jesus is able!
Married, more than 30 years to his wife, Belinda, he’s humbled to have such a wonderful woman as his helpmate.
