Donna Sandridge, Senior Pastor

*   Pastor Donna serves as Senior Pastor of MorningStar Family Church since 2008. She co-pastored with her late husband Rev. Wade Sandridge from 1979-2005.

Bio: Pastor Donna has served as the Senior Pastor of MorningStar Family Church since September 2008. Not long after she gave her heart to the Lord, she met her husband, Pastor Wade Sandridge and they were married in 1962. God called them together in ministry. They ministered in nursing homes, tent meetings, camp meetings, conventions, conferences, taught Sunday School, led youth services. Wherever God called, they went.

They started a Christian school, established a youth camp at Shiloh Campgrounds on the eastern shore of Maryland, founded and pastored two churches (Philippi, West Virginia / Thurmont, Maryland), did missions work in the Philippines, Nigeria, Russia, Venezuela, Israel, and in many states across the USA. While on a mission trip to Israel in 2005, Pastor Wade suddenly passed away and she has continued to carry on the work God called them to do.

Pastor Donna loves to minister under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Her heart’s desire is to see people come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and that they will be filled with that same passion. She is praying and believing God will make Himself known to all those who hear His Word as it is preached, that they experience the fullness of the Holy Spirit and that they will receive all that God has for them. She has served God for over 50 years and is blessed and grateful to be a part of this last-day harvest.
