1st Lady Henderson
Our Assistant Pastor, Evangelist Cathie Henderson, was raised and educated in Neenah, Wisconsin. She has been serving as the Assistant Pastor of the New Life Body of Christ Christian Church since June 1996, under the leadership of her loving husband of 35 years, Senior Pastor, Bishop Michael A. Henderson. 1st Lady Henderson is actively involved in the work of ministry at New Life and oversees several of the ministries within the church while serving with a spirit of excellence. She is passionate about bringing out the gifts that God has instilled in His people and is better known as the “Quiet Storm” because of her quiet, meek and humble spirit.
1st Lady Henderson retired on December 31, 2015 after serving in the Federal Government for over 36 years, beginning her career in the United States Army for four years and ending her career with the Department of Defense on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii as a Housing Privatization Liaison. She has served in Korea, Washington, Germany, Georgia, and has been here in Hawaii since 1996, which she now considers her home. Most notably, 1st Lady Henderson received the Federal Executive Board Award for Volunteer Service for the Department of the Army here on Oahu, for all of her volunteerism in the community. Her heart is in “touching people and changing lives” and to make a difference in the lives of others.
1st Lady Henderson is a breast cancer survivor and gets strength through encouraging and supporting other women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Through her experience, she has learned to cherish each day that the Lord continues to bless her with here on this earth.
She enjoys shopping, reading, writing and traveling. She is the devoted mother of Brandon and Stephanie.
