Lorraine McDonald

Lorraine is a senior leader in education, having worked in the sector for over 30 years (primary, secondary, FE and HE).  Her experience includes working in Initial Teacher Training and as an Assistant Principal Examiner (AQA).  She is also a school governor.

Married, with four adult children, she is an active member of Handsworth church, Birmingham.  Her passion is outreach/evangelism, with a desire to see the gospel reach as many people as possible.  Her spiritual giftedness in leadership, teaching and administration has been fully utilised in various church departments, especially Personal Ministries.  After almost 28 years of teaching junior Sabbath School, she continues ministering as a presenter for The Secrets of Prophecy Online Bible Seminar and teaches Sabbath School (It's Biblical) on HopeFM radio.

Having previously worked in Adventist education, it has been Lorraine's desire to return to full-time ministry.  As BUC Education Director, her vision is to ensure our schools provide high quality Adventist Christian education, rooted in the Bible and underpinned by the best researched practices in education, enabling our children to develop a biblical worldview whilst fulfilling the imperative given, of training our youth "to be thinkers, and not mere reflectors of other men's thought."—Education, p 17.
