MacKenzie has always been obsessed with stories. She was first interested in creating them as a child by acting out scenes with her Disney plastic figures. Her love for storytelling grew exponentially when she began to participate in community theatre with her whole family. When she was 15-years-old, God called her to be a storyteller for Him through youth ministry.
Like in most Biblical stories, it took her a long time to accept the calling (five years to be exact), but she did and graduated from Lipscomb University in May 2018 with a B.A. in Theology and Ministry and a minor in Theatre. Telling God’s story through youth ministry is in her blood. Her father, Mike Lewis, was a youth minister for over 20 years, and her mother, Karen Lewis, has been an English/Speech and Theatre middle school teacher for 20 years. To sum it up, MacKenzie is beyond thrilled to share God’s story at Hendersonville Church of Christ.
