About our Speaker

Henry Jernigan is a highly regarded pro-life speaker who has worked professionally in film, TV, radio, and theater. His messages combine humor and real-life circumstances to enlighten communities about the amazing work of their local pregnancy center motivating them to get involved.

Dubbed as one of the “best speakers you’ve never heard of,” Henry effectively communicates that God has a plan and purpose for every life…regardless of circumstances.

Soon after learning they were pregnant with their first child, Henry & Elizabeth learned that their son would be born with Spina Bifida. As the doctors laid out all of the medical implications, including the probability that Pierce would never walk, Henry and Elizabeth were offered the option of terminating their pregnancy. They rejected the abortion route, however, and decided to trust God with their child’s unknown circumstances in what Henry described as an almost ‘numb faith’. As Henry so bluntly puts it, “If we had ended Pierce’s life through abortion – not only would we have denied God the opportunity to fulfill His purpose for Pierce – but for our own lives as well.”
