Addressing Gender Wounds



Anointed Teaching

Born in Victoria, British Columbia, and raised in Japan by missionary parents, C. D. McDonald has been an ordained Anglican priest in parish ministry for 12 years in the Anglican Church of Canada, and 10 years in the Episcopal Diocese of Central Florida.  She now resides in Sanford, Florida with her husband.

McDonald holds the Bachelor of Theology and Master of Divinity degrees from the College of Emmanuel and St. Chad in Saskatchewan, Canada; and the Doctor of Ministry degree in the area of Pastoral Counseling from the Graduate Theological Foundation in Indiana, U.S.A.  Dawn is a Certified Pastoral Sexual Addiction Specialist with the Christian Sexual Addiction Specialists International, and a Certified Pastoral Sexual and Relational Recovery Specialist with Compulsive Problematic Sexual Behavior & Partner Trauma Association.

Dr. McDonald is also a trained leader for Living Waters Canada (now Journey Canada) programs and a founding member and chair person of The Zacchaeus Fellowship (http://www.zacchaeus.ca) a group of men and women who hold to the church's historic view on sexuality in the face of former or present struggles with same-sex attractions.

As an openly ex-gay Anglican priest, who was active in the lesbian lifestyle (and partnered) for over 13 years and then experienced the transforming power of Christ, McDonald has spoken at numerous conferences and events both nationally and internationally.  McDonald has spoken with and ministered to hundreds of same-sex attracted individuals. She has also co-authored Taking Love Seriously, an Anglican Agenda Series booklet whose series editor is J.I. Packer.  She brings to this session, her academic qualifications, personal experience of same-sex attractions, and her pastoral experiences.
