Unity in the Body of Christ with Dan Nold & Harold MacKenzie

One of today’s describes our current situation this way: “We are the white church. We are the black church. We are the Hispanic church. We are the Chinese or the Asian church. But in my heart, to my core, I don't believe that ever entered our Father's heart. He sees us as his one church, one family. And so it's become a passion of my heart to see us come together.”

About the Guests

Harold McKenzie

Harold McKenzie

A native of Harrisburg, Pa., Harold McKenzie and Sherren, his wife of almost forty-eight years, have been residents of State College since 1976. He has served as senior pastor Unity Church of Jesus Christ since 1989. His life passions are that all people come into an intimate personal relationship with our heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, and unity in the body of Christ, particularly as it pertains to fighting the sin of racism. Sherren and Harold have been blessed with three wonderful children; two outstanding daughters-in law; and six wonderful grandchildren.

Dan Nold

Dan Nold

Pastor Dan has been married to Lynn for over 30 years. As much as he loves the church, his most significant and enjoyable achievement has been partnering with Lynn to love and develop their four kids and now one kid-in-law: Sarah, Katy (and her husband, Josiah), Jake and Josh.  Dan and Lynn came to State College and Calvary Church in 1994. Dan earned a Bachelor of Science in Speech Communication from Bethel University and a Master of Divinity from Bethel Seminary. Dan loves to preach, develop leaders and strategize about the future of the church in the Centre region. Years ago, Dan read a prayer by A.W. Tozer that he still prays consistently, “Lord make me a man to whom you can entrust your glory.” That’s Dan’s greatest purpose. “I long to become a man to whom God can entrust his glory—a living display of the gospel of grace—to inflame a passion for Christ in others."
