Death Of Legendary Religious Leader, Apostle Richard D. Henton of The Monument Of Faith Church
by Marksallen, ChicagoNow‎

Hoping the afternoon and evening newcasts will report on the death this morning of of one of Chicago legendary religious leaders, Apostle Richard D. Henton of The Monument Of Faith Church. We report so much about the death from senseless violence with TEAM Coverage and it would be a great switch to report on the death of one whose ministry breathed LIFE to generations in our City. Thank You This link can provide all the background for news editors etc.

I am personally grateful for the personal relationship and interaction that I had with the elder Richard D. Henton through many days in my over 40 years in public service.  He was always available to provide words of comfort and counsel through the challenged that many of us in leadership faced on personal and professional levels. His words and comfort and counsel will live on for generations to come from the archives of his radio and tv ministries. And he will certainly live on in the thousands of intergenerational lives he touched personally and through his church ministry.
