His outreach was expanded through the many revivals and crusades he conducted across the country and lives were impacted through his television and radio outreach ministry, the Breakthrough Hour.

Pastor Henton welcomed many preachers and singers to his church including Pastor Shirley Caesar, Pastor Marvin Winans, Babbie Mason, Bishop Rance Allen, Pastor Beverly Crawford and Bishop Ernestine Cleveland Reems.  Pastor Henton recorded several preaching albums accompanied by his 100 voice Breakthrough Choir.  The Breakthrough Choir was also featured on recordings with Vernard Johnson and counted Keith Pringle and Ricky Dillard as members.
