Shauna Mackey Q&A

Q&A with Shauna Mackey








Q: How long have you been going to NCBC and when did you join?

A: I have been coming to NCBC since last August when I came back to Gainesville for grad school. I joined officially a few months ago!


Q: Where are you from?

A: South Florida! Fort-Lauderdale area


Q: Hamburger or a Chicken?

A: Chicken — I was actually raised a vegetarian and didn’t have my first hamburger until I was 13!


Q: Where’s the first place you sang?

A: My mom told me I sang all the time as a baby but the first time “professionally” was age 4 in a children’s theatre performance of Wizard of Oz.


Q: Favorite song of all time?

A: Oh that is a reaalllly tough one. I really love “Oceans” by Hillsong United because it’s a huge part of my testimony and Taya Smith is just outstanding.


Q: When did you get saved?

A: God had been pursuing me for a while, but it wasn’t until fall of 2017 that I gave Him lordship over my life.


Q Favorite hobby?

A: Oh I have tons of random hobbies but I love doing anything creative like filming and editing videos to painting. I’m also a sprint triathlete!


Q: Favorite place you worked?

A: “Coolest” would be NBC television station, but my true favorite job was working in a hospital on the inpatient rehab unit because I was really able to see God working in people’s lives, talk about Jesus, and share some really miraculous moments with patients during their recovery process.


Q: Person you would like to meet most?

A: Other than the obvious answer of wanting to meet my Creator, I would love to meet (as a pair) Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon because they seem to have a blast together. I love the musical comedy sketches they do together and there’s nothing like a good ol’ laugh.


Q: Favorite scripture?

A: For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith — and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God — not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9
