In this position, he supervises offices in Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, and Lubbock. Henry is also a member of LeTourneau University’s Center for Faith and Work Advisory Council.
LeTourneau University’s Center for Faith & Work was founded in 2011 to reflect a burgeoning “faith at work” movement to help the employed—and unemployed—find God beyond church doors. The Center’s website, www.CenterforFaithandWork.com, assembles resources, tools, and curriculum for churches, students, and the global Christian community to equip and connect them to live out their faith in the workplace. Foundational to the Center is the notion that God values good work well done.
