Dr. Howell’s leadership expertise focuses on the tools and frameworks needed to develop theologically reflective ministry responses to the fears that keep people and church leaders awake at night. Ordained in the North American Baptist Conference, Dr. Howell spent two decades serving Baptist and Evangelical Free churches in Canada, Colorado, Oregon, and California. He served in the pastoral roles of preaching, leadership development, worship, and youth ministry before making the transition to the academy.
As the Dean of Teaching & Learning, Dr. Howell continues researching the implications of digital culture on education, ministry, and interpersonal relationships. With a particular emphasis on developing mental frameworks from which to interpret rapidly changing culture realities, his work integrates historical, contemporary, and biblical vantage points to develop innovative ministry leadership strategies. Speaking and writing on the topics of Christian living, leadership, and ministry in a digital world, his current research is centered on the response and innovative strategies church leaders have employed to navigate through, and following, the COVID pandemic.
He is married to Lynette, a CPA in South Carolina. They have two grown children, currently spread between South Carolina and Alaska.
