Apostle R. D. Henton's Scripture of the Day
But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. James 1:22
LongevityThe hand of God was seen on Apostle Richard D. Henton’s life at an early age. He was ordained an Elder at the age of sixteen in 1949. The early years of ministry were dedicated to evangelism as he traveled the world preaching the word of God and ministering to the needs of people. Since its inception in 1964, the Monument of Faith Evangelistic Church has grown tremendously. With prayer, supplication, dedication and strong leadership, the church continues to grow as a testament to its name and purpose as given to Pastor Henton in its beginning.
In March 1976, the church aired its first weekly radio broadcast which further exposed the ministry of Apostle Henton to thousands of listeners. Indeed, The Breakthrough Hour has been a welcomed and well received addition to Christian broadcasting. With its soaring popularity, many followers were delighted to learn that it’s well beloved radio broadcast would soon be seen on WCFC/TV 38. In 1978, The Breakthrough Hour transmitted via satellite into thousands of homes for the first time. For well over a decade, the Breakthrough Hour was the top rated telecast consistently before the television station was sold.
Indeed Monument of Faith Church has been and is a place “where people can come and receive deliverance for their bodies and souls.” All praise to God for His wonderful works toward the children of men and his faithfulness to fulfill the vision that he gave Apostle R. D. Henton.
