Apostle McDonald vision begins with a commitment to reach people of all walks of life regardless of race, gender or age and without compromising on the faith that once was delivered by the Lord Jesus Christ.  He leads the church by pouring the Word of God into the lives of men, women, and children from all walks of life.  He believes in operating within the guidance and parameter established by the Bible; it’s his responsibility to lead the congregation in accomplishing God’s ordained functions on this earth.  Apostle McDonald truly believes that before a person can understand or appreciate a Pastor’s vision for the church, the Pastor himself should understand what the mission, the vision and purpose truly is for the church.

Under Apostle McDonald’s leadership, the Bridge Crossing School of Theology was established at the Spring Valley Baptist Church on August 2016.  Apostle McDonald was the first student to finish coursework for the Diploma in Theology.

Apostle McDonald has been happily married for over 25 years to Valerie.  They are the proud parents of one son, Johnny and their first grandson Zayden.
