Meet Al Houghton


Al resides in Yorba Linda, California with his wife Jayne. They have three grown children.

Al Houghton grew up in a small town in Missouri. He graduated from the University of Missouri at Columbia, with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Marketing.

After graduation, he joined the navy to become a pilot, flying one hundred and sixty-one combat reconnaissance missions during the Vietnam War. He left the military to fly commercially, but God dramatically intervened calling him into ministry.

In 1975, he moved to Southern California to attend seminary and earned a Master of Divinity Degree in theology. Immediately upon graduation, the Lord instructed him to start a teaching ministry and live by faith.

The teaching ministry began in home Bible studies, but grew to occupy other facilities, like Mott Auditorium on the campus of the U.S. Center for World Missions in Pasadena, where Al taught for ten years.

1984-1987 marked a transition as God added a prophetic touch to the teaching ministry. Doors opened in other nations and Al began to minister at International Leadership Conference.

A daily bible study, entitled the “Word at Work,” was published and is available upon request and also on his web site

Al has authored four books, Power of Agreement, The Blessings of Diligence, Purifying the Altar and Marked Men.
