Henderson to serve as national correspondent for WMU

Trennis and Pam Henderson

Trennis Henderson, vice president for communications at Ouachita Baptist University since 2008, has accepted a new ministry role in partnership with National Woman’s Missionary Union effective Aug. 1. He will serve as WMU’s national correspondent and his wife, Pam, will be involved in related administrative and production services.

In their new roles, the Hendersons will travel throughout the nation as he researches, conducts interviews and produces news and feature articles and related content about missions and ministry projects, events and volunteers.

“God continues to transform lives daily through WMU as preschoolers through adults learn about and pray for missions, as well as personally serve others and support missions efforts,” said Sandy Wisdom-Martin, executive director, national WMU. “This transformation takes place as believers grow in their faith and recognize opportunities for sharing the love of Christ. As they share their faith and minister to those in need, broken lives are restored as people respond to the gospel.”

Wisdom-Martin said partnering with the Hendersons to travel around the country will be an effective way to capture these stories that will inspire and inform Southern Baptists.

“These compelling stories—of redemption, restoration, recovery, reconciliation and more—unfold day in and day out across the US as people are living life and ministering to others” she said. “Whether at school, work, sporting events, or out and about in their communities, inspiring stories of faith and hope are all around us. This initiative will help tell those stories.”

Henderson, who has extensive experience in the field of Christian journalism, previously served as editor of the Kentucky Baptist Western Recorder and the Arkansas Baptist News as well as managing editor of the Missouri Baptist Word & Way. He holds degrees from the College of the Ozarks and Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

“As we look to the future, Pam and I are excited about God’s direction and timing as we pursue this new missions opportunity with WMU,” Henderson explained. “One of our primary goals will be to tell stories designed to help younger generations explore God’s call to missions and ministry.”

As the Hendersons travel, they will report on missions efforts through WMU age-level missions organizations to ministries of WMU such as Christian Women’s Job Corps/Christian Men’s Job Corps, Pure Water, Pure Love, and WorldCrafts, among others.

“We are excited to partner with Trennis and Pam to share the impactful stories of ways God is at work and changing lives through WMU missions opportunities and ministries,” said Julie Walters, corporate communications manager, national WMU. “Trennis’ expertise in story-telling through articles, blogs, social media, video, and more, will help inspire a deeper faith and greater missions involvement.”
