Married 40 years, Pastors Norman & Sandra Howell have had a diverse and impactful ministry on three continents with a major focus on Latin America as well as the United States. In 1983 they founded the Laredo Church of the Crossroads with the idea of seeing a duplication of their efforts through team ministry on an even greater scale. They have deep roots in Mexico and Central America but also a great love for South Texas and the border region peoples. They minister from the heart and yet offer stability and vision for the 21st century. The Howell’s are never dull and are always looking to grow themselves and to grow the people entrusted to their care. They are known for being approachable and always willing to listen to people’s hearts—enjoying the role of caring for Christ’s sheep and helping them to soar as eagles.
