Dr. Derrick Henderson
Dr. Derrick Henderson was born in Harlem and raised in Mount Vernon, NY. At an early age he knew he was destined to serve God, which began with the playing of drums in a local church. His faith however, was tried at the age of six when his world was turned upside down following the death of his mother, and his battle to survive the sometimes cruelties of the foster care system. With the mentoring of a friend, or God-send, and his knowledge of God, through it all, he was finally adopted at age 13, by Marion and Princess Henderson of Mount Vernon. Here, he was able to continue his passion for serving God in the choir at Grace Baptist Church where he found he had a talent for singing. Though the streets and the pressures of this world would try to claim him, God had a different plan. His passion for serving continued to grow and mature through overcoming many trials and tribulations, moving from mistakes to mentors and from strongholds to strength. Regardless of the challenges, his dedication and passion never wavered. His insatiable hunger for God, the studying of the logos, and teaching the body of Christ allowed him to keep his eyes on the prize and to consume himself with “Christ and Him crucified…”
The purpose of every trial and tribulation had finally become clear, the night that Christ revealed Himself to Derrick through a personal visitation while praying one night. The clarity of his call was sealed. God had chosen him from before the formation of the world, “...from before he was in his mothers’ womb...,” (Jer. 1) to be an apostle of God. He immediately went out spreading the Word of God and encouraging those who were lost to return to the Father. His concentration is to establish and re-establish the foundations that have faulted and to teach the truth of God that save souls.
The confirmation of the anointing was evident wherever the Holy Spirit led him. God’s favor followed him with men and women he had never met.
A few years later, ap. Derrick Henderson birthed New Revelation Church out of Harrisonburg, Va. Many were encouraged and blessed by this ministry. Following this plant, God called ap. Henderson to do a work in New York of which Harvest Fire Prophetic Ministries, Intl. was born.
Harvest Fire Prophetic Ministries is a unique work. The revelation of its peculiar, Christ-centered nature continues to unfold. Presently, we are an itinerant church in essence, going out to those who need to and desire to hear truth. It is a Christ-Centered resource for information through conferences, seminars, and counseling. Sacrifice of Praise Dance Ministries, comes under the umbrella of HFPM, and there are more ministries to be birthed for the ...perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ. (Eph 4:12).
From the Latin-root, ‘Derrick,’ ‘meaning leader of men,’ and the Greek, meaning ‘crane;’ ap. Derrick V. Henderson has been chosen to setup, establish and root out the gifts and callings in the people of God so that their foundations can be established and rooted in Christ, and fortified and empowered by His Word. We celebrate God in who He has given us in the gift of Dr. Henderson. Dr. Henderson is an Affirmed Apostle by Dr. Roman of A.P.P.M.I. for over 10 years, and was Consecrated to the Episcopacy in 2009.
Dr. Henderson is married to pr. Lisa Henderson, servant and steward of Sacrifice of Praise Dance Ministries. Together, they have two children, Joshua, and Princess; and reside in Yorktown Heights, NY. Dr. Henderson received Bachelors from Friends World College and his Masters from Kings College both in NY. Dr. Henderson received his mDoctorate in Divinity in January, 2009 from Jackson-Davis Bible College & Seminary located in Los Lobos, California.
When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth! Jesus is the Christ!
