Camille Henderson Pursues Her Calling in Ministry

January 2021

Camille M. Henderson is a 2015 graduate of Spelman College. Obtaining a bachelor’s in political science, she spent the majority of her undergraduate career examining the role of religion in the mitigation of child sex trafficking within the metro-Atlanta area.

Henderson obtained her master’s of divinity as one of five Robert W. Woodruff Fellows at Candler School of Theology, Emory University. In addition to her studies, Henderson served as a graduate assistant for the Human Rights Program and The Carter Center. There, she supported former U.S. President Jimmy Carter’s mission to counter religious narrative used to justify human rights violations, especially against women and girls. Most notably, she led the creation of a scripturally annotated version of the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Henderson is currently pursuing ordination in the North Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church and serves as an assistant pastor at Cascade United Methodist Church in Atlanta. Ultimately, her desire is to lead the faith community in providing appropriate responses to the injustices of violence against women and girls.
