Did Pastor Keion Henderson and His Wife Get Divorced?
Keion Henderson is a pastor famous for his timeless wisdom and advice, particularly on dating, marriage, and living with a life partner. Despite being a guru of all love-related things, the pastor could not hold together his own marriage.
Keion Henderson Was Married to Felicia Henderson
Keion had a pretty happy marriage with his ex-wife Felicia Henderson back in 2015-2016 — at least that is what his social media suggested. Parents to two daughters, the couple seldom shared details about their marriage, but Keion did showcase his wedded bliss on Instagram.
In a 2016 Instagram post, the pastor gushed about his wife, calling her a “timeless treasure” on her birthday. Along with that, there are also posts of birthday surprises that implied their marriage was going well.
Keion and Felicia Worked Together in Projects Related to Faith
Apart from being his wife, Lady Felicia was also a partner in Keion’s professional life. The two worked together in the Lighthouse Church and also launched other projects, including the Sugarland Campus.
In September 2019, Keion told Chron that an African prophet had dreamt of Keion and his wife ministering in Sugarland, which eventually came true when the two of them jointly opened a Lighthouse Church branch.
In the same interview, Keion also shared how he and his wife led a church in Houston, Texas, together.
The Couple Got Divorced In 2019
Even though their connection seemed to be strong, both personally and professionally, their marital union ended in 2019 when he allegedly filed for a divorce.
Vlogger Larry Reid got hold of their court documents and released it on his Patreon account for the world to see. It confirmed that the pastor had, in fact, filed for a divorce.
In a video, Reid also mentioned that before the divorce was confirmed, Keion said he was “going through changes” in his marriage. Later, the Pastor himself confirmed the divorce in an interview with BlessedBeatz Media.
The Divorce Was a Positive Change Albeit a Tough Step
Evidently, the divorce was tough on the pastor. He was encouraging others to accept love, but he himself was falling apart.
In an interview with BlessedBeatz, he shared that he was learning how to courageously move through that season—the season of separation—pastoring to a megachurch.
I was scared to death... [God] wasn’t wiping my tears.
Because he had been through his fair share of ups and downs, people found his words of wisdom transparent and relative. His life experiences have given him an insight into how to look past the hardship of one's current state and see the bigger picture.
In his book 'The Shift,' the pastor focuses on transition periods between tough and better times. The book, whose main theme is all about shifts that occur all around you every day, also has a chapter dedicated to divorce and its events.
