A Dedication Page

To Our Founding Teams

A Place In Time was founded on many Teams working together and achieving the Mission: Helping Other People Excel In Purposeful Living!

This page is dedicated to our founding teams who were instrumental in the establishment of the ministry!  They were the missing piece at A Place in Time before they said yes to God with their gifts and talents. Each has learned through experience — God does not call the qualified, He qualifies the called.  While some of them have moved on, and some of them continue, we Thank God for each season at A Place in Time and all God has done, all He is doing and all He is going to do!  
This page is dedicated to our founding teams!

Arthur & Donna MacDonald

Arthur– Levite Captain

Donna–Community Liaison Coordinator

For many years, Arthur poured his heart into our Community Center, beautifying it so that it could stand as a place that people want to visit and stay a while. The Community Center was established as a place ready to receive people who are hopeless with a welcoming, clean, beautiful, organized surrounding, bringing hope where there is none. Thank you Art for your years of dedicated service!    


Donna is “Buba” to her grandchildren and “mom” to many children that she has been called to help raise  — children who did not have a mom. Donna is a pre-kindergarten teacher and a Certified Preschool Director. Her passion to reach people with the hope of Jesus Christ shines through service, visitation and her dynamic personality. Donna was, for years, our our Community Liaison Coordinator, connecting A Place in Time to the community and conveying our presence and mission to people struggling in West Broward County.  She is still connecting today!  Donna is now on the Board and is our Vice President, coordinating the daily operations at A Place in Time.  It has been magnificent to watch Donna grow and step out in faith!    You can still contact Donna at: onevoice@aplaceintime.org

Kathy–Bread of Life

Alex and Kathy came to the United States from Scotland more than 30 years ago.

Kathy is organized and detailed and has coordinated & trained Bread of Life Pantry volunteers for years. She has a talent for creating more and more effective methods of coordinating people and resources to achieve a goal.  She has grown tremendously at A Place in Time and is now on the Board and our Treasurer.  

Alex has been the Multimedia Tech Coach who created the infrastructure for our Sunday morning experience through media, projector, music, and quality of sound.  Alex serves faithfully to this day and is now on the Board.  Alex has a talent for car mechanics that has transferred over to ministry time and time again.   

Both Alex and Kathy have a heart for struggling families, because as children living in Scotland they knew all too well what it was like to go hungry.  God has blessed them abundantly and now they are blessing others with hope. Alex and Kathy have been married for 25+ years with one adult daughter.
