Verna Elisha (V.E.) Howard, through the influence of brother J. L. Hines, began attending the church of Christ. Six months after he was baptized into Christ in October 1930, V.E. decided that he wanted to preach the Gospel. In the fall of 1931, he attended Abilene Christian College to study Bible. The next year he studied at Harding College in Arkansas. After preaching for five years, V.E. decided to devote himself full-time to radio evangelism and conducting gospel meetings.
During his lifetime V.E. preached in gospel meetings throughout the United States and baptized more than 8000 people. In 1995, after sixty-one years of broadcasting, he discontinued his radio work at the advice of his doctors and transferred the International Gospel Hour to the elders of the West Fayetteville congregation in Fayetteville, Tennessee.
