Elder J.L. Henderson, Pastor

Elder Henderson has served as pastor of The Lakeland Church since December 2012. He was instrumental in the evangelizing and formation of The Lakeland Church in June of that year when his father in the ministry and he travelled to Lakeland at the request of a small home group seeking truth. After six-months of monthly visits, Pastor Henderson accepted the call to be the full time pastor of The Lakeland Church. His wife Wendy and he then moved to Florida and have made Lakeland their home. In addition to the local congregation, Pastor Henderson also oversees the remnant of the former Meadows Church of Las Vegas. He travels to the Las Vegas area four times a year to be with the non-resident members located in Southern Nevada, Central Arizona, California and other surrounding areas.

Pastor Henderson was duly ordained by a presbytery made up of ordained Elders with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery and prayer, which is the Biblical pattern of ordination as outlined in the Holy Scriptures. This, of course, after he had been examined to satisfy the presbytery that he met the qualifications of a Bishop as outlined in the epistles of the Apostle Paul of 1 Timothy and Titus. He had served as a lay minister and licensed minister at his home church for the better part of twenty-five years prior to his ordination.

Pastor and Wendy have been married for 30 years. They have two grown sons, one currently serving in the United States Navy and stationed in Jacksonville, Florida; the other recently graduated from Florida Southern College in Lakeland Florida, after having served five years active duty in the United States Air Force.
