Bishop John and Sis Marilyn McDonald

On March 8th of 1970, Pastor John McDonald along with his wife Marilyn and toddler daughter, Andrea, embarked upon a new experience which they thought would be short lived..…but instead proved to be a defining moment for them and the city of Eureka. Through many hard times and struggles, they stayed, worked, & prayed and in March of 2011, Bishop John McDonald officially retired after 41 years of pastoring. We are eternally grateful for their legacy of Apostolic doctrine, lifestyle and commitment to the city of Eureka.
