The Rev. Justin Howard, Rector

Justin was born in Queens and raised in upstate New York, spending copious amounts of time exploring, hiking, fishing, and camping in the Catskill Mountains. Having given his life to Jesus as a teenager, he grew to understand the good news of Jesus and his Kingdom through forgiveness and healing in his own life. Justin attended Houghton College where two of the most significant events of his life occurred: He met the Holy Spirit, and he met Amy. Justin and Amy were married in 2006 and made six amazing and energetic boys, Josiah, Simeon, Judah, Elijah, Aidan, and Noel, who fill their lives with wild joy. Justin studied at Asbury and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminaries and finished his Masters at Trinity School for Ministry after having found his place as an ordained priest in the Anglican Way. Justin and Amy planted Imago Dei Anglican Church in Bangor, Maine in 2012, which has since grown into a substantial parish and they now lead All Saints together. Justin enjoys people in all their varied experiences, mess and beauty. He lives to see others join Jesus’ story in the renewal all things and he is always up for a trip to a café or brewpub.
