Minister John W. Howard, Jr. lifelong gospel singer, composer, and drummer with roots deeply grounded in the church. John was raised and nurtured in gospel music by his parents, Pastor John and Joyce Howard. The ministry of John W. Howard, Jr. & The End-Time Levites was birthed on the campus of Rowan University, located in Glassboro, NJ. It was during John's final year as director of the campus gospel choir that the vision for his next phase of ministry was unveiled. Before he would graduate, this 35 voice collegiate aggregation would complete a 12-song CD entitled: "Church On Campus: Live" under John's leadership. While seeking the face of the Lord concerning the next facet of ministry, God led him to II Chronicles 29. Based on the word of God, he was ushered into the next dimension of his ministry. The End-Time Levites was founded on September 23, 2000. The choir consists of various young people coming from all different walks and denominations in the Body of Christ. Along with the dynamic voices anointed to sing, our Musical Director, Minister Jerod Howard contributes greatly to the success of the music ministry. The End-Time Levites have traveled extensively and appeared with gospel greats such as: Youthful Praise, Richard Smallwood, Daryl Coley, Franklin "Bubby" Fann, James Hall, Craig Hayes, Bishop Charles R. Lyles & the New John Howard's Caravan, and others. The End-Time Levites have also been featured artist on the House of Blues Gospel Brunch. After hearing the true calling given by God, in December of 2002, John W. Howard, Jr. gave his initial sermon. Since that time Minister Howard has been blessed to preach at various services, youth conferences and revivals spreading the love of Jesus and feeding the word of God to all. Minister Howard joyfully embraces his first call to his family as a husband and father. He is proud husband of Keisha Howard and father of three children, Jashur, John III, and Joycelyn.
