About  Stephanie


Our greatest failure, coupled with God's redemptive power, can prepare our most influential  platform of grace, forgiveness,
and strength. 

The world needs our redemptive stories of hope


Stephanie Henderson

Stephanie's personality is easily characterized by her love of laughter and greeting people with a huge hug whether she is meeting them for the first time or they are long-time friends. Like most women, she embraces many areas of affection in her life.– Hers include wife, mom, Bella (grandmother), pastor, teacher, and author. 

She grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana, and relocated to Colorado Springs, Colorado following Hurricane Katrina.  After 20 years of ministry, she began speaking nationally and internationally which was a sweet surprise in her personal journey with the Lord. She began simply sharing her story with both humor and authentic vulnerability and how God's word was intended to fiercely intrude on every circumstance of life.  

Within Stephanie's 30 years of ministry leadership, she has led in Executive and Senior Executive Pastoral roles within growing, relevant, multi-generational churches. Within her areas of oversight, she has led multiple departmental teams within worship, communications, production, guest relations, volunteers, conferences, and served as a Pastor of Women where she has built a thriving women's ministries.  Additionally, Stephanie is a John Maxwell Team licensed coach and speaker and provides person and executive coaching to individuals and organizations. 

She leads a women's broadcast titled, "Loved, Seen, Treasured", is the founder of "She Leads Leadership Academy, and is the Host of "She Leads" podcast. Her greatest joy is seeing women come to understand their value through the lens of God's limitless love and delight in who they are. Stephanie is uniquely gifted as a bold teacher of the Word of God and a dynamic coach to help empower women to step fully into their destiny, 

She has written books, using her authentic yet challenging style, to encourage readers to see God's perspective on a deeper level. Her latest is Her Heart Is Torn, an honest look about navigating grief and loss while understanding God's presence through the depths of pain.  Her first book, Unforgettable - God's Relentless Heart for HIs Daughters, shares a powerful message on daughterhood and understanding how our position through spiritual adoption changes everything. 

Stephanie is happily married to George; Mom to Jessica, John Mark (Lisa), and James (Rebecca); Bella to Haven, Mary, and Henderson John. Additionally, their family has two Yorkies, named Cayenne and Dolce.  Her greatest joy is celebrating her family and preparing large amounts of New Orleans inspired cuisine for all to enjoy.
