Howard is a life-long resident of upstate New York. He has a wife Cindy, 5 sons, 14 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild. He graduated from Pulaski High School and joined the Marine Corps during the Vietnam era. He became very confused and disillusioned with life and was introduced to drugs and the party scene which exacted a toll on his life and marriage. He became a born again Christian in the mid-1970’s during a revival here in Jefferson County. His conversion was very powerful and his life totally changed. He currently ministers for Christ at the Jefferson County Jail. Come and hear Howard’s testimony and experience the powerful presence of the Holy Spirit!

After attending JCC, Deleha continued her collegiate career at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising where she finished an online Merchandising and Marketing associate degree in just ten months. During this time, she faced several “slumps,” hardships and struggles that led her to be captive by the enemy. Soon after graduation, her family switched to the First Baptist Church in Watertown, and after hearing Pastor Jeff speak, she gave her life to Christ and was baptized soon thereafter.
Currently, Deleha works as a key holder at a retail store in the mall, continues to attend church at the First Baptist Church, works in the church’s sound booth, is a Children’s Church leader, attends Jim Monroe’s bible study and is working to both learn more about and strengthen her relationship with Christ. She aspires to soon return to college to study Media, Communications, Graphic Design and Photography to one day work as an influencer who combines her many passions in life to aid individuals in their walk with Christ.
Deleha would like to say thank you to all those who could attend this evening to hear her speak.
