Pastor Keion Dwayne Henderson, who is the founder and Senior Pastor at The LightHouse Church, has embraced ministry since giving his first sermon at age 14. While in college, God gave Pastor Henderson a calling that switched his career path from sports to the promotion of social empathy and religious growth. With the Lord’s help, Pastor Henderson graduated with a degree in Organizational Communication and moved to Houston, where he sowed the seeds that would become The LightHouse Church, now one of Texas’ fastest-growing churches with over 4000 members. Since its inception, he has grown the church’s impact in the local community through need-specific initiatives, and expanded its mission and his own advocacy to include issues of human and social rights on the world stage.
“We are all very excited to see Pastor Henderson honored for his two decades of spreading the word of God and walking the walk during the difficult times. He is a cornerstone of the local community, and is always leading, inspiring, and guiding in a way that spans different religions but yet always drives the message back to God,” says Earnest Pugh “His accomplishments in 2015, including a Billboard and iTunes charting single, TV appearances relating to religion, race, and social equality, and work with singles who are #inthewait, are just a testament to his vision and his ability to resonate with a diverse cross section of people.
