The Purpose

Jordy Henson has dedicated his life to pouring into underserved high school students from the Birmingham City School System. With boundless energy and care, he mentors young men, challenging them to live for Christ, walk with integrity, work diligently, and pursue quality education as a path to a better future.

To honor Jordy’s ongoing faithful service, his friends and the members of Shades Mountain Baptist Church have established this SHADES CITY MINISTRY SCHOLARSHIP FUND. Its purpose is to provide scholarships so that the students Jordy invests in can continue their education at the college level after graduating high school.
