John Henry Jowett was born in Halifax, England in 1864. He became Congregational pastor.

He said on one occasion he saw seventy Salvation Army officers receive their commission for foreign service. That is seventy men being assigned to serve God in a foreign country.

John Henry Jowett said not one of them had any idea where the command would send him, whether to Africa, or India, or Brazil, or to a crowded city in Japan.

When each man received his commission, he welcomed it with a salute!
