Howard is CSB’s man on the west coast of Canada, serving as Regional Director for British Columbia since 2001, and Alberta, since 2011. He and his wife, Kathie, have two married children and five grandchildren.
In 2009, CSB BC and the WFV Area Committee felt called to “build men” and so Howard’s relationship with ISI and men’s ministry expanded. And in 2012, Iron Sharpens Iron was introduced into Canada at ISI-Langley in November of that year.
In 2010, Howard joined the CSB reVISION Team and helped formulate changes to the Stockade program. He rewrote three of the four Stockade Trail Guides, and co-rewrote the fourth. He has also written several of the Stockade Modules and Outpost Adventures.
Howard has been involved in CSB in one capacity or another for almost 45 years.
