GLASSTOWN CHURCH PASTOR
My name is Erik Howard. I have the privilege and honor of being the pastor at Glasstown Church. I've been in church ministry for a total of eight years and I studied at Liberty University. Along with my amazing wife and a core team, we planted Glasstown Church in February 2016. I am driven in ministry by the idea that Jesus calls his church to make healthy disciples. I'm married to the love of my life Katie-Jean. She is a school teacher, the mother of our daughter, Joy, and the best cook I know. Before I moved to NJ, I lived in Nebraska and I love everything to do with the Nebraska Cornhuskers. GO BIG RED!

Planning and implementation of the Glasstown Church service.
Carry the heart for the preaching of God's word at Glasstown
Carry the heart for the presence of God in all Glasstown services and ministries.
