One year after we launched, Pastor Leon “Mac” McKenzie joined our pastoral staff. Pastor Mac’s responsibilities include preaching and teaching, building administration, website development and church-wide communications. He also founded and is clinical director of the Brighter Day Counseling Clinic, which serves to provide affordable professional mental health counseling to members of our church and community.

Pastor Mac was raised on the Southside of Atlanta in Clayton County by way of Brooklyn, NY. He graduated from Emmanuel College with a B.A. in Christian Ministries and is currently completing his M.A. in Biblical Studies with a distinction in mental health counseling from Reformed Theological Seminary. He and his bride Nichole live in the Collier Heights/Adamsville neighborhood of West Atlanta and share a heart for Gospel ministry to the underserved. Pastor Mac’s passion is to help our people experience God’s holistic plan of redemption and renewal through our Lord Jesus Christ; mind, body and soul. He and his wife are so grateful to be a part of a church and family that shares this vision and relentlessly pursues it’s fulfillment day in and day out.
