County's largest church welcomes (retired Bishop John) Howe as new pastor

From Virginia-

Dr. John W. Howe, who became senior pastor at The Lake of the Woods Church on Jan. 1, is not entirely new to the pulpit of the 800-member multidenominational church in Locust Grove.

Howe was occasionally a guest preacher there from 1977 to 1988, when he and his family enjoyed vacations at a getaway home in LOW. He was pastor of the 3,700-member Truro Anglican Church in Fairfax at the time, and LOW Church was a fledgling congregation of believers who met in the community clubhouse.

Subsequent decades saw the church grow into Orange County’s largest, while Howe was elected bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Central Florida, the spiritual and administration leader of 38,000 members in 88 parishes centered in Orlando and stretching from Ocala to Okeechobee.
