Dr. Marc Donaldson
Marc is an Elder in the Texas Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church, providing leadership in the areas of Outreach, Witness and Care and Compassion.
After receiving his undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering from Texas A&M University, Marc practiced engineering for one year, then was called to the ministry. In 1999 he graduated with his Master of Divinity from Asbury Theological Seminary and was appointed to Christ Church. Marc loves University of Kentucky basketball, Texas A&M football, but the prize of his life is Leanne, the best youth minister around, who happens to be on staff at Christ Church as well! They were married in 1997.
"My ministry is God's ministry, and it is the product of the love of my life, Jesus Christ. I am grateful for those in my life who hold me accountable to being with Him. Daily prayer and daily time in God's Word are staples in my spiritual diet. And one of my heroes in the faith is E. Stanley Jones, who said: 'When I think of goodness, I do not add virtue to virtue: I think of Jesus of Nazareth. When I think of God, I do not go through my imagination: I go through His image. 'He is the express image of God's person.' And if God is Christlike, I could think of nothing higher. If God isn't Christlike, I would lose interest in Him and turn my love and loyalty to Christ alone...' It is ALL about Jesus."

She graduated from Texas A & M with a Biology degree and spent a number of years in medical diagnostics sales and service before becoming a full-time mom.

Kelli received a call into ministry through her pastors and friends at her United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, GA. She attended Asbury Theological Seminary, and graduated with a Master of Divinity in 2015. She is passionate about helping people discover their own God-given gifts and graces, and leading others in their personal journey of faith and ministry as disciples of Jesus Christ.

For fun, Kelli enjoys traveling, cooking, gardening, reading, and spending time with friends and family. The Bible verse that guides Kelli in mission, ministry and life is Micah 6:8 "He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?"
