James Henderson

James Henderson is originally from Orlando, Florida, but has lived in Birmingham since January of 2016. Although raised in the Southern Baptist tradition of the Christian faith, he now finds his home in Anglicanism. Currently, James and his wife Rebecca worship at St. Peter’s Anglican Church in Mountain Brook where Rebecca serves as a deacon.

In 2013, James graduated from Berry College in Rome, Georgia, with a Bachelor of Science in Political Philosophy. A few years later, he enrolled in Beeson Divinity School here in Birmingham, and he received his Master of Divinity in the spring of 2019.

Partially springing from his relationship with his brother who has Down syndrome, James has a love for those in the special needs community. During his time in seminary, he worked at the Exceptional Foundation in Homewood, a non-profit providing social opportunities for those with special needs.

James is excited for this chance to grow in his knowledge and experience of pastoral care and looks forward to serving at UAB.
