Visionary Leadership


In 1979, Pastor McDonald was saved at Vernon Assembly of God in Louisville, Mississippi. At the age of 14 he was filled with the Holy Ghost and received the call to preach. He married Pamela Mahathy in 1993. He has traveled traveled the United States, and preached crusades and planted churches in South America, as well as ministered in England, Africa, and Israel. He presently serves as Pastor of Faith Assembly of God in Texarkana, Arkansas. Ministering to the flock of God has been a lifelong calling for Pastor McDonald, and at its origin lies the love of evangelism. He is characterized by his fellow ministers as a Pentecostal preacher, and over the past 32 years of ministry has seen multitudes receive salvation, the baptism of the Holy Ghost, and accept the call into the ministry.
