The Rt. Rev. Mark MacDonald assumed office as the Anglican Church of Canada's first National Indigenous Bishop after a long ministry among Indigenous People across Turtle Island, including serving about 10 years as Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Alaska from 1997 through 2007. His education includes an M.Div from Wycliffe College, Toronto and a D.Min. from the Church Divinity School of the Pacific, Berkeley, California.

Bishop MacDonald’s ministry is now focused on assisting the emergence of an Indigenous community of faith within the Anglican Church of Canada and beyond.

Bishop MacDonald has published extensively including, The Chant of Life: Inculturation and the People of the Land, 2003; Holy Ground: A Gathering of Voices on Caring for Creation, 2008; Edinburgh 2010: Mission Today and Tomorrow; and, The Gospel after Christendom: New Voices, New Cultures, New Expressions.

Bishop MacDonald will be teaching Indigenous Christianity: Theologies, Praxis, and Mission during the Summer 2014 term, along with Dr. Terry LeBlanc.
