Lisa Henderson

Director of Children and Family Ministries


Beginning in the Summer of 2018, Lisa began overseeing the children and family ministries, birth through 5th grade. Lisa also supervises the operation of our state-licensed Preschool and Child Care Center, works with the Preschool and the Child Care Center Boards, and with the Christian Education–Children Committee.

Lisa has served congregations in Children and Family Ministry for over 15 years.  She attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and National Louis University, Lisle, where she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Applied Behavioral Science. She is married to Doug, and they have two daughters.  As a family, they love to bicycle, hike, camp, travel, play board games, and share meals.

Lisa’s ministry philosophy is based on some of her favorite Bible verses found in Deuteronomy 6 where Moses instructs us to love God with all our heart, with all our soul, with all our might AND to teach this to our children. Lisa strives to support the children and families of CPC to help them live out this great commandment!  “It is with great joy that I join the CPC community in ministry. It is withpassion that I will help the children and families realize the incredible LOVE that God offers to each and every one of us.”
