Bruce McDonald

Born: 30/12/53,


New Zealand.

Raised in a Christian family in rural, New Zealand, Bruce gave his life to Jesus Christ at a Youth Camp at 14 Years of age. Four years later while a student at Waikato University he was ‘Baptised in the Holy Spirit’.

Following four years of Primary school teaching Bruce resigned to begin ‘full time’ Christian work. Firstly, in an assistant role in a church and then for one year as NZ Representative for Asian Outreach, a cutting-edge mission organization to China and Asia. He then became Senior Minister at Whakatane Christian Fellowship (now ‘Liberty Church)’, a position he was to hold for the next 10 ½ years.

He and the family then moved to Auckland to take up the position of Senior Minister at ‘The Life Church’ (now Expression Church).

On June 30, 2014 Bruce relinquished his position at ‘The Life Church’ after 21 years of leading this great church, and 33 ½ Years of Pastoring to pursue other areas of Ministry. He founded ‘LIFT Ministries Trust’ and now speaks in many Church and Community settings, is writing Christian material and teaches seminars on ‘Biblical Finance’, ‘God’s Agenda on the Earth’ and other Biblical topics, responding to the doors that the Lord opens to him.

He is passionate about the ministry of Prophecy and to seeing ‘gifts of healing’ manifest in people’s lives. Pursuing the calling to ‘heal the sick’ in 2020 Bruce, and a team working with him began ‘LIFT Healing Meetings’ in Auckland city. These meetings see all who attend prayed for along with many others who join online from around the world.

Bruce is married to Maude. They have four children, Michael (and Amy), Lisa (and Tom), Krysta (and Sam) and Daniel. They now have 4 Grandchildren, Ellie, Isaac, Jack and Bella.

Additional Ministry involvements:

Founder and Patron of ‘Liberty Trust’, in New Zealand – a Charitable Trust established to teach Biblical principles on Finance and demonstrating these by assistance to families and churches through an ‘Interest Free’ Home Loan scheme that releases finance, assisting them toward financial ‘Liberty’! To date more than $65,000,000 (NZ) has been loaned.

Bruce was between 2000 and 2002, the National Leader of the ‘New Life Churches of New Zealand’. A movement of more than 90 Churches with many more International affiliates. He currently functions as the ‘International Coordinator for ‘New Life Churches’.

Bruce sits on the Board of Trustees for ‘Chosen Valley Christian Camp’, in South Auckland and ‘Mercy Ships New Zealand’.

Together Maude and Bruce have a passion for ‘World Missions’, committed to going, ‘sending’ and ‘supporting’ those who ‘GO’! Bruce has now visited about 30 countries with the longing to tell people that God loves them and has a plan for their lives.

Bruce was the Chairman of the ‘Management Board’ of ‘New Covenant International Bible College’, serving this School as both a Board member and lecturer, and for a time as Principal.
