Howard Edington is a nationally renown speaker and preacher, and a leader in the global mission community. His ministry began in Kilgore, TX back in 1967. He served congregations in South Carolina and Arkansas, before beginning a twenty-one year service as senior minister of the six thousand-member First Presbyterian Church of Orlando. Throughout his tenure, the congregation quadrupled and his televised weekly services (The Certain Sound) were picked up by audiences in the Southeast. He and First Pres set a high standard for programmatic outreach, developing over one hundred and eight ministry areas that reached throughout the world.

Following a distinguished career in Orlando, Howard, instead of hanging up his robe and entering retirement, took on a dying church. In 2008, he became Preacher-in-Residence at Central Prebyterian Church on the Upper East Side of New York City. Over time, the 1904, John D. Rockefeller-built church was revitalized and filled to capacity. The final pastoral ministry occurred in Houston, TX (at Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church).

Howard Edington has a post-graduate degree from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, The Jerusalem Center for Biblical Studies in Israel, and Oxford University, England. He has honorary doctorates from Arkansas College, Rhodes College, Presbyterian College, Florida Christian Univeristy, and Grove City College.

He was founding chairman of The Christ School (an elementary and middle school on the campus of First Presbyterian Church, Orlando). He served as a member of the Board of Trustees of Montreat College, including a term as chairman.

The original publication of The Forgotten Man of Christmas was released in 2005 and received a major writeup in Time magazine.

The father of two adult daughters, Howard is grandfather to three. His 22-year-old son, John David, died in an automobile accident.

Fifty plus years have combined to make Howard Edington a power voice among Christians, a strong educator and a wonderful writer. The Forgotten Man of Christmas: Joseph's Story is an example of his powerful writing skills.
