Highlight on Senior Faculty Member: Dr. David McKenzie

Dr. McKenzie

"Dr. McKenzie possesses a broad and deep knowledge of Christian traditions, texts, practices and thought forms. He somehow combines his formidable intellectual prowess with genuine humility and deep wisdom. Students who have the opportunity to take Dr. McKenzie's classes during his final year of full-time teaching should consider themselves greatly blessed." - Dr. Andrea Hollingsworth

"Dr. McKenzie is the single greatest influence on me in my ten years here at Berry College. He has been a mentor, a friend and a constant source of inspiration. Dr. McKenzie carries himself with an elegance, dignity and sense of humor that is truly refreshing. While he is always kind and compassionate, Dr. McKenzie is a fearless defender of the high values he upholds. More than any one else on campus, Dr. McKenzie has made Berry the model of interfaith education it is today. Moreover, he is one heck of a tennis player!" - Dr. Jeffrey Lidke

"It will be hard to imagine Berry College and the Department of Religion and Philosophy without David McKenzie. I first met David when I came to Berry to interview for a job as an assistant professor of philosophy about fifteen years ago. I was impressed by his colorful tie and very friendly and welcoming demeanor. Once I got the job here, I heard people talking about some event that occurred the year before that involved a guest speaker whose behavior ignited religious discord and conflict within the Berry community. I had heard that David had spoken out courageously against the speaker and attempted afterwards to heal the trauma inflicted upon the college. I did not know all of the details and still really do not, but this was my first exposure to David's heroic virtue and his total commitment to creating and sustaining an open and compassionate environment for all the students, staff, and faculty at Berry. The Berry of today is very different from the one I came to fifteen years ago, and it is in large part due to David's efforts that today we have student organizations for Muslims and Buddhists as well as an official recognition of Listen as a college organization. These developments were practically unimaginable to me just fifteen years ago. So I heartily thank and salute David for all that he has done to make Berry College a better place to work and study, and I hope that he will continue even in his retirement to grace the Department of Religion and Philosophy with his presence and wisdom." - Dr. Michael Papazian

After the coming academic year, Dr. McKenzie will be retiring from full time teaching here at Berry College. We are honored to count him among the Philosophy and Religion department faculty. He obtained a theological seminary degree from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, an M.A. in Philosophy from Louisiana State University and his doctorate in Philosophy from the University of Texas. Dr. McKenzie teaches Christian Faith and Feminist Critique with a focus on the treatment of women from the biblical period to the present day. He has a bi-vocational career as a Professor of Religion and Philosophy at Berry as well as a Pastor at Rehoboth Baptist Church near Cave Springs, GA. He is an avid tennis player, often playing matches against other faculty members as well as students.
