Their greatest delight is in their two married children and five grandchildren. Beyond that the MacDonalds are hikers, bikers, kayakers, photographers and vigorous readers.

OLATHE, KAN, -- MidAmerica Nazarene University’s Sullivan Center for Church Leadership is hosting a conference featuring author, speaker and teacher Dr. Gordon MacDonald. The two-day event, which will be held on campus, is focused on personal resilience.

MacDonald, who has been a pastor for over forty years, hopes to highlight themes that speak to how a leader charts his/her course through a lifetime of ministry. McDonald has a passion to create a culture of personal growth and development for younger leaders in the church.

“I am in that stage of life,” he says, “when I feel called to be a spiritual father to a younger generation.”

MacDonald has written over 20 books, and co-authored others with his wife, Gail. Perhaps his best-known title has been Ordering Your Private World, which won the Gold Medallion and the Platinum Awards from the Evangelical Christian Publishing Association.
