Henry Lee Pendergrass Obituary

Henry Lee Pendergrass, 67 of Midland, passed away on Friday July 5, 2024. Visitation will be from 4:00pm – 5:00 pm Friday July 19, 2024, at Christ Church Anglican in Midland. Services will be at 10:00 a.m. Saturday July 20, 2024, at Christ Church Anglican in Midland.


Henry was born on August 18, 1956, in Pittsburg, Texas to Robert and Mary Pendergrass. Growing up, he learned to work on his family’s ranch and graduated from Pittsburg High School. He was not ashamed to claim he was a kangaroo, having attended Austin College in Sherman, Texas. He received his Master of Divinity from Virginia Theological Seminary, in Arlington, VA. Following seminary, he was a curate at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Dallas and later an interim priest at Holy Cross Episcopal Church in Dallas. He married his lovely wife Colleen in 1995 and started work at the Bishop Mason Retreat Center in Flower Mound, Texas. In 1998 he planted St. Nicholas Episcopal Church at the Bishop Mason Retreat Center. While at St. Nicholas, Henry was blessed with 2 daughters, Abigail and Elizabeth who he adored. Henry transferred to the Anglican Church in 2006 and planted Church of the Resurrection in Flower Mound, Texas. In 2013, he was called to come to West Texas and Christ Church Anglican in Midland, Texas.


Henry faithfully loved and served his Lord Jesus. He was a gifted preacher, teacher and pastor. The Holy Spirit worked through Henry to draw many to Jesus. We are confident that Henry was welcomed into the gates of Heaven by Jesus, saying, “Well done, good and faithful servant!” Colleen, Abby, Annie and all who knew and loved Henry look forward to that great reunion one day in Heaven with the Lord Jesus, Henry and all who know Jesus as their Savior.


Henry is survived by his wife Colleen Pendergrass, his beloved daughters Abigail Lebron and her husband Jhaivony, and Elizabeth Pendergrass, his siblings Keith Pendergrass and his wife Juli, Virginia Lannen, and Peter Pendergrass and his wife Desiree.


He is preceded in death by his parents Robert and Mary Pendergrass.


The family would like to express their gratitude towards Dr Mangat and his office at Texas Oncology and especially the valet parking ladies who always put a smile on his face, Dr. John Araujo and Dr. Musa Yilmaz and their offices at M.D. Anderson, Home Hospice, and Faithful Journey Home Care.


But most of all the family would like to thank our Christ Church and Midland family who has loved, prayed, and supported us as Christ loves his church.


In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Love for the Least at their website giving.lovefortheleast.org direct to Henry’s Farm, Bolivia Project Send checks to Christ Church Anglican and direct to Bolivia, Christmas in Action, and The Attic.


Arrangements are under the direction of Nalley-Pickle & Welch Funeral Home & Crematory in Midland.  Online condolences may be made at www.npwelch.com.
