Honoring Apostle Richard D. Henton October 28, 2015
Bobby Rush, D-IL
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to pay tribute to Apostle Richard D. Henton who made his heavenly transition on October 22, 2015. Apostle Henton was called into the ministry in 1948 and rose to become one of the most prolific speakers of our day. Apostle Henton served in ministry for 66 years, 50 of those as pastor of the 5,000 member Monument of Faith Church located in my district. Apostle Henton also founded the R. D. Henton Breakthrough Ministries, a weekly program that aired on television, radio and online throughout the world and allowed Apostle Henton to touch the lives of millions across the globe. This tremendous ministry permitted the world to know Apostle Henton’s charismatic and captivating voice that brought breakthroughs for his members and the world at-large and led many to know him not only as a faithful pastor but as their “TV Evangelist”. Mr. Speaker, Apostle Henton was a learned man who held three Doctorate of Divinity degrees and was the recipient of numerous certificates of merit. Apostle Henton was not only honored by our colleagues here in the House, but also with letters from presidents, and having been given keys to many cities. Of his numerous awards, he was especially proud of two very special awards he was given in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois: The N’Digo Foundation’s N’Faith Award and the Luminary Senior Citizen Hall of Faith Award presented by former Mayor Richard M. Daley. Of his many accomplishments, Mr. Speaker, we must not forget that, ultimately, Apostle Henton was a family man and the father of four children who worked faithfully with him in the ministry. Mr. Speaker, Apostle Henton will truly be missed by us all but I will always remember what an amazing pastor and friend he was. My thoughts and prayers are extended to his family, church family and many friends. No one can prepare for a loss; it comes like a swift wind, but, I take solace in the fact that he is now resting in the arms of our Lord."
