"It doesn't matter where you've been or what you've done; what you've gained or lost; where you started or where you're stuck...God loves you and still has a plan for your life."

This is the heartbeat of the message Dexter and Genette Howard have lived and declared throughout the world for over 20 years. This message has brought hope, help and healing to thousands of people and birthed sons and daughters into the Kingdom of God.

The Howards are a ministry team, serving together as parents of 6 growing daughters, Pastors, Bible-teachers, authors, and humanitarians. Most of all, they’re best friends, fun-loving, everyday people who love Christ and are committed to expanding the Kingdom of God.

Dexter and Genette are the founders of Howard International, a ministry organization dedicated to inspire and equip strong faith, families and futures around the globe. Their greatest passion is planting and nurturing life-giving churches where people can be healed, restored and released into their God-given purpose to advance the Kingdom of God.

In 1998, the Howards founded Restoration Church in Fayetteville, Arkansas, which is now a dynamic and thriving congregation impacting the Northwest Arkansas region. The Howards have traveled throughout Haiti, South America, and many African nations (Nigeria, Zambia, and Botswana) as speakers, teachers and humanitarians.

Dexter Howard is the author of Identity Shift: The Change That Changes Everything, in which he shares his struggle with fatherlessness and how shifting into his true identity as a son of God changed his life. He is a proud alumnus of the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville and a four-year letterman with the Arkansas Razorbacks football. Dexter is currently pursuing his doctorate degree in Apostolic Leadership and Applied Theology from Wagner University in Pasadena, CA.

Genette Howard is the author of two books, Fight Stress & Live: 5 Simple Commitments That Can Save Your Life and The Five Laws Of Gratitude: Simple Shifts to Create a Happier, Healthier & Wealthier YOU. Her books give people the information and inspiration they need to thrive in life. She is a graduate of the Olin School of Business at Washington University in St. Louis and is a certified personal and executive coach. Genette serves as Executive Pastor of the ministry.

In obedience to the call of God, Dexter and Genette moved their family to Charlotte, North Carolina in 2014, to plant The Restoration Place Church.The Howards received their Apostolic Commissioning in April 2022 by Dr. Ché Ahn, President of Harvest International Ministries in Pasadena, CA.
