Pikesville International (Md.) church welcomed Pastor Otavio McKenzie on April 11 during the Sabbath worship service held via Zoom. Due to current coronavirus-related restrictions, the pastoral installation took place through an online format, a first-time experience for the Chesapeake Conference.
Pastor McKenzie is transitioning from the Illinois Conference, where he served as lead pastor. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Religion and a Master of Arts in Pastoral Ministries from Andrews University (Mich.). Otavio is joined by his wife, Bella, and their 3-year-old daughter, Amora Grace. We warmly welcome the McKenzie family to the Chesapeake Conference!
