James and Florence MacKenzie love Jesus Christ and his gospel, and believe the Bible speaks just as powerfully now as it always has. They are passionate about applying biblical principles to everyday life and are active in preaching in the beautiful English county of Northumberland where they currently reside. James and Florence are parents to one adult daughter and best friends to one black and white springer spaniel.

In addition to preaching and speaking at events throughout the UK and overseas, Florence – who has a diploma in preaching as well as a degree in psychology – is a published author of small group bible resources. In her free time, Florence pursues her passion for animal print; indulges her interest in interior design; and furthers her investigations into her ancestry. She also enjoys walks in the countryside, accompanied by her furry four-footed friend.

James’s passion for God’s word is never more in evidence than when he preaches, presenting biblical truth in practical and incisive ways. Professionally, James is a medical doctor and has worked most of his life as a pathologist. In his spare time, his interests are more artistic. In addition to enjoying creative writing, particularly poetry and short stories, James also enjoys listening to music. He has eclectic music tastes – ranging from Gregorian chant to progressive rock – but finds medieval choral pieces help him unwind after a nail-biting afternoon spent supporting his favourite football team.
