Youth Worker On Fire Podcast

May 15, 2024

Mackenzie Balmer was a girl who grew up without the church. When she encountered Jesus, she found out that God had a wonderful plan for her life already in place. She and her husband Zane have a unique love story and they both have a ministry profession.

Mackenzie is with Apex Missions for students with the EFCA (Evangelical Free Church of America). She helps youth pastors and their youth groups get onto the national and international mission field. She also works with Apex's Mission and Leadership Team and their "TEN:Two Team", so students can serve Christ and His Church during the summer.

Listen in as we dive into Mackenzie's story!
