Howard Dayton graduated from Cornell University and served two and a half years as a naval officer. After developing a successful railroad-themed restaurant in Orlando, Florida, Howard began his commercial real estate development career in 1972, specializing in office development.
After a business partner challenged him to study the Bible to discover what God teaches about handling money, Howard’s life was profoundly changed. The Lord gave him a passion to share these life-changing principles, resulting in the authorship of five books, Your Money: Frustration or Freedom, Your Money Counts, Free and Clear, Your Money Map and Money and Marriage God’s Way. He also has authored five popular small group studies and produced several video series.
Howard founded Crown Ministries in 1985 which merged with Larry Burkett’s Christian Financial Concepts in September 2000 to form Crown Financial Ministries. During his tenure as CEO, Crown became the world’s largest financial ministry teaching more than 50 million people in 80 countries. He served as host of the nationally syndicated radio programs, Money Matters, How to Manage Your Money and Ted and Tony.
Howard transitioned from the role of CEO at Crown and in 2009 founded Compass—Finances God’s Way. Compass’ primary focus is on teaching God’s financial principles through small group studies.
Howard married Beverly in 1971 and they have two children: Matthew (married to Michelle) and Danielle (married to Kyle Hasbrouck) and two grandchildren. Howard and Beverly reside in Central Florida and have led 55 small groups.
Kyle Hasbrouck graduated from Flagler College in 1997 with a B.A. in communications. After graduating college, he served on Young Life staff for eight years as a Church Partner in Daytona Beach, Florida and as the Young Life Area Director in St. Augustine, Florida.
In 2001, Kyle married his wife (Danielle). They were both deeply impacted through their pre-marital counseling by a Crown Financial Ministries small group study. As they started applying God’s word on finances in their own lives, they began to see the ministry opportunities and the need to take this message of stewardship to others.
In 2004, Kyle felt a calling to join Crown Financial Ministries. From 2004- 2010 Kyle served as the Area Director for Northeast Florida, the District Director of Florida and Georgia and later as a Development Officer for the Crown home office.
In March of 2010, Kyle transitioned to Compass-finances God’s way to focus on bringing the message of stewardship to people through the life changing, small group experience. Kyle and Danielle continue to live in St. Augustine, Florida and he currently serves as the COO for Compass-finances God’s way.
