Desmond McKenzie, B.A.


I’ve been given life again by a healing and compassionate God. This life is focused on three things: Help people live. Help people experience God. Strengthen those who lead in serving others. 3 words, 4 words, and then 7. To be lived out in 24-hour gifts of days I almost did not have. So that’s what I’m here to do. It’s how I want to serve, or to use the longer word for “serve,” minister.

Biographically, I’m the second child of F.W. and Margherita McKenzie, and was privileged to participate in the amazing journey of Weston UPC and becoming Faith Sanctuary. That included everything from van driving to concrete mixing to exploring how to work with people through our Leaders Unlimited classes. Along with life at church I’ve had the opportunity to help organizations around the world with change and transformation. Or as one of my clients put it, “pastoring without a pulpit”.

Familywise, Rhonda and I have been married for almost four decades, which have flown by with great enjoyment! We don’t have kids anymore, instead three amazing adults, Ryan, Kyle and Kayla.

At Faith Sanctuary we want to share your today with you, with all its challenges and blessings. And we want to share tomorrow with you, a future full of hope in a God who never stops caring for us. Whether you’re an old friend or a new one, welcome home.
