Dr. Howie and Beverly Shute
Howie has an engineering background, working as a manufacturing executive for twelve years before God's calling to full-time ministry. Subsequent to his call to ministry and to his theological training, he served as a pastor for eight years, and a global missionary for fifteen years. He has been involved in several movements of God that have given rise to explosive church growth.
His broad but distinctly unique experience has made him a popular speaker throughout the world. His preaching and teaching is filled with stories of God working miraculously through ordinary people.
Beverly is an accomplished teacher and very gifted speaker. She has traveled with Howie on many of his speaking engagements, sharing exciting stories from her missionary experiences.
Howie accepted a call to be the lead pastor of Victory Hills Church of the Nazarene (VHCN) beginning in November 2014. He is anticipating a real movement of God, as the VHCN is used by the Lord in making Christ like disciples in the Kansas City Metro area.

She loves singing worship and prayer songs to the Savior, ministering to and learning from children, and serving the Lord by serving people. Most of all she just desires to follow God and wants the love of Christ to radiate through all she says and does.

She loves children and working together with the children's ministry team is a big blessing to her! Jesus said, "let the children come to me."
