McKenzie has served as Facilitator of Youth and Young Adult Networks in the Diocese of Eastern Michigan since 2015. During that time, she has developed a robust program for youth and young adults that has included opportunities for youth across the state, access to peer relationships beyond the congregation and beyond the diocese, and, with the Canon for Evangelism, has developed a group of “young adults” (college-Gen X) that gather for Compline and Dinner once a month in locations in both dioceses (when circumstances allow for in-person gatherings).
In her role, McKenzie directs, oversees, and convenes children, youth, and young adult formation programs and networks in the dioceses. Working with diocesan leadership, she develops and plans programming and opportunities for leadership for all ages and identifies and share resources with the growing network of parish youth ministers (staff and volunteer).
Congregations should contact McKenzie to discuss youth and young adult networks and formation programs.
