JESSIE HENZE

Program Manager: Legend High School

Jessie spent the last several years leading a successful sales team in the natural products industry. After many accomplished years in sales, it became clear that The Lord called Jessie to a role in vocational ministry. She has been married for 9 years and has a loving 4 year old son. 

As a young teen, Jessie struggled to find her place and feel valued in the world. At that time, a married couple started a youth ministry club that changed her life forever. Jessie’s heart is to see each and every teen grab hold of God’s unconditional love for them and let their lives be transformed by Him. Her passion is for teens to feel the same amazing grace she was shown in her youth, and to be a trusted adult in their lives. 

Jessie loves hiking, coffee, reading, and chasing her son around!
