  • Henry Murphy
    Director of Ministries

    Henry Murphy is returning to Jackson Youth for Christ after six years.  He and his wife Aleva are Jackson natives and members of the Madison Campus of Pinelake Church.  They have two children, Henry II and Hayley.  

    Henry gave his life to Christ at a young age and has spent most of his adult life working with students in some capacity.  He has been a volunteer youth director, a full-time local church youth pastor, a Young Life volunteer, a Youth for Christ volunteer, and previously as Youth for Christ Executive Director.  He is fueled by the opportunity to lead tribes of churches, leaders and volunteers who are hungry to reach this generation of kids who are equally hungry.

    Henry looks forward to leveraging the connections with other non-profits, churches, school organizations, and community leaders he has gained over his years spent in ministry.

    When not engaged in ministry related activities, Henry enjoys traveling with Aleva and the offspring, riding his bike, and spending time with anything with four wheels and an internal combustion engine.
