Dave Mckenzie

Deacon

Dave McKenzie was born in Mandeville, Jamaica; he is the first of three children.  Dave spent his early childhood living with his grandparents who were deeply rooted in the Church.  His grandfather was a minister of the Church of Christ and made sure Dave was grounded in the truth at an early age.

After living with his grandparents, Dave moved back home to live with his parents where he went to grade school and high school.  During this time he got baptized into Christ in 1982. 

Dave moved to Orlando, FL for a brief time and then back to New York where he lived and worked for a while before deciding to move north to Boston, MA.

While in Boston, Dave reunited with his first real love, Rosealie, and they got married.  The union is going on 18 strong years.  The Dave and Rosealie have three boys, Jaime, Alex and Dimitri.
