Rev Dr John Mc Donald


In February of this year 2021 turned 81 years of Age.   

So thankful to God for his strength and my present health.

For over 61 years now I have been Ministering this Glorious Gospel

of Jesus Christ, that is able to Transform lives and turn people around.

I was born in Cambridge, (Preston)  Ontario, Canada, and raised at

Wasaga Beach, Ontario, Canada.

Lorna & I have been married now for 51 years.   More in love than ever with each other and Jesus.   Marriage is a life-time commitment and is for better or worse.   Too many people give up during the worse, which most people have periods of.

Lorna received her Registered Nurse degree from Soldiers Memorial Hospital in Orillia, ON., in 1968.    She worked on and off in this field for several years, as much of the time we worked together in Ministry.  

I attended Eastern Pentecostal Bible College in Peterborough, Ontario         for Ministerial training for 3 years.   This is the Canadian arm of the Assemblies of God. (the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada)

In 1962,  I attended L.I.F.E. Bible College in Los Angeles, California the training college of the International Foursquare Church denomination.   I graduated from there with my B Th. degree.

I earned my M. Ch. Ed. degree at Canada Christian College in Toronto, ON., Canada, in 1998.

In 2000 Canada Christian College, conferred an Honourary D.D. – Doctor of Divinity degree on me for 40 years of Christian Ministry.

We have two wonderful, amazing children:

 Sonya (Heath) and Marty 

Both are married and involved in Ministry as well.

Al & Sonya Heath, have accepted a new ministry challenge as Executive Pastor at King Street Community Church in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada. 

Sonya works as the Worship Leader at King Street Community Church.

They have three children – Summer (24), Levi (21) & Quinton (19).   


Marty & Nicole Mc Donald,  live in Barrie, ON, where Marty  works as a Church Builder during the week.    (                                    

Nicole is a Nurse Practitioner, working in the City of Barrie, ON

They have three children – Lauren (22), Taylor (Tate)  (21)  & Sydney (Syd) (16)   

We therefore have six grandchildren, we love equally.
