Rev. Lorna MacQueen (Minister)

I have been an ordained minister in the United Church of Canada for over 30 years. I have served in churches large and small, in Canada and also for one term with the UCC Division of World Outreach in Brazil. I have a Master of Divinity (1983) and a Master of Theology (2001) and training in Interim ministry and Spiritual Direction. After serving the church for seven years as the Minister of Faith Formation for Discipleship for Hamilton Conference, I returned to pastoral ministry through Presbytery Supply and have served in that capacity for 16 months. This close to retirement I prefer not to return to call but rather serve the church in a supply capacity. I look forward to building on the learning of these ministries in a new opportunity to engage with others in supporting the purposes of God in the world.
