Hi! If you don't know me I am am Mackenzie!
I am currently 21 years old pursuing a life of full time ministry! Most of you know but if you do not know I just recently packed up and left Tennessee to train to be a staff member of a Discipleship Training School (DTS) in Kona, Hawaii. I am working with Youth With A Mission, the school I attended in 2019-2020. I have committed to staffing two DTS's over the next two years. With this amazing opportunity I will be living full time on the island, from June to September each year I will be training to be a staff member which will look like lots of practical training with our leaders, lots of reading books, and lots of spiritual growth and development.
Starting in September we will begin lecture phase and we will receive between 400-500 students that we will spend all of our time with teaching and training until December. We will train and equip them in every way possible to look, act, and love like Jesus. I will be living in a room with 9 girls where I will be discipling them, guiding them, and loving on them throughout the whole lecture phase.
The community that I am a part of is mainly focused on raising up, training, and sending out young people to do whatever the Lord has called them to do. We are completely centered around prayer and worship, we do nothing without it, and we are nothing without it. Some of the vision behind what I am a part of is to transform the Hawaiian Islands, to be a gathering place for the body of Christ, to be a servant leader to the body, and to be a bridge to all the nations. We want to see the great commission fulfilled in our day and for every unreached people group to hear about Jesus.
I am looking for prayer partners and financial partners in this season to support the ministry Jesus has called me to do. I am looking for people to come alongside me and help me to be the hands and feet of Jesus. I do not get paid as staff here at YWAM so I fully rely on monthly support to pay for my housing, food, transportation, and other normal life things. By supporting me financially you are helping me to live a sustainable life that will help me prepare and learn all I need to before I lead a team and go into the nations. Any amount helps! Whether it's $5, $10, or $500 it helps me out so so much to complete the work of the Lord. Most importantly I am looking for prayer partners to provide spiritual covering over me and backing my ministry. If you want to be praying for me so important things are:
- I would learn more and more about God, prayer, and the Bible.
- for me to find deep community that will last for years.
- that I would become the best leader that I need to be.
- spiritual protection from any attacks from the enemy.
All in all, thank you so much for supporting me in the past, or considering supporting me. You all help me to fulfill the great commission and make disciples of all the nations! I appreciate you so so much and I'm so grateful for you, more then you may know. I can't wait to update you on all the Lord is gonna do and I can't wait to see you again!
