Pastors Alan & Jessie-Claire Henderson

c3 church, boston, MA

Alan and Jessie-Claire grew up and met in Townsville, a city on the north-eastern coast of Australia, known for its beaches and crocodiles. Alan and Jessie-Claire have significant business experience both having both held senior executive positions, as well as running their own start-up companies. But their real passion has always been living out their passion as Pastors across multiple areas of the church. In 2013 God placed the city of Boston on their heart. In 2016 Allan and Jessie-Claire followed their God inspired dream, walking away from the security of great jobs and a great church to start a significant city-wide, life-giving church that is changing the spiritual atmosphere of the Greater Boston area.
