The Hendricks Center
About The Hendricks Center
The key to any organization is leadership. And the key to any leader is the heart. That’s why our focus at The Hendricks Center is the leader’s heart. Through programs, processes, and media resources, we seek to shape leaders who are passionately committed to God and His Word while personally compelled by God’s love for each person. This is the way of Christ, who showed that it takes courage to lead, compassion to serve, and both to impart the hope of the gospel. For a discussion of our approach, watch this Table Podcast episode: “Leading with Courage and Compassion.”

About Howard “Prof” Hendricks
Dr. Howard G. Hendricks, known simply as “Prof,” directly or indirectly touched millions of lives in the evangelical community and beyond. For more than sixty years Prof served on the faculty of Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS), where he taught more than ten thousand students. He served as the chairman of the Center for Christian Leadership for over twenty years. He also ministered in person in more than eighty countries. Through speaking engagements, radio, tapes, films, the sixteen books he authored and coauthored, countless journal and popular-market articles, his service on numerous boards, and his work as a chaplain to the Dallas Cowboys (1976–1984), his reach was and is worldwide.
His legacy, in partnership with Jeanne, his wife of more than sixty-five years, includes four children and six grandchildren. Holding large audiences enthralled at venues such as Billy Graham’s conference center or Promise Keepers’ stadium rallies, Prof would confide, “It’s wonderful to be here with you, but I have a group of delicious students waiting for me back at the seminary.”
