Our KY-MSC Family has once again lost a dear member. Bro. Marc Hensley, who served as Director of Meridzo Ministries’ Calvary Campus in Blackey, KY went home to be with the Lord on April 3rd.
Marc had only served as a KY-MSC Missionary since February 10, 2022, but he had done a tremendous work and had to jump in with both feet. Marc had been at Calvary Campus only a few months when the historic eastern Kentucky flooding of 2022 hit. He went right to work managing lots of resources, donations, and mission teams that came to eastern Kentucky to help, and many families were assisted as a result.
Marc was not new to ministry, however. Prior to becoming Director of Calvary Campus, Marc served for seventeen years as the Director of Mountain Outreach, a non-profit service organization operated by the University of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg, KY. This ministry provided community service, repair projects, and home builds to help children, the elderly, and financially struggling families with critical and urgent needs throughout their service region.
Bro. Marc’s obituary shared that he “loved mission work, loved people, was a collector and hunter, loved birddogs, was an avid storyteller, loved music, loved Kentucky, and was fluent in ‘hillbilly’’, which all made him fit right in to ministry in Appalachia. Marc was special man that impacted the lives of so many.
Bro. Marc, thank you for committing your life to the Lord and for sharing Him with others, especially in the hills and hollers of eastern Kentucy. What a beautiful legacy you have left and it was a joy to know you.
Please pray for Marc’s wife Wanda, his daughters, mother, and all of the family and friends during the days ahead, and pray for Calvary Campus as they seek a new leader.
