Our Staff and Our Ministries

Our Pastor

The Rev. Dr. Brad Donahues has been pastor of Lorain Christian Temple Disciples of Christ since 1995. Prior to that, Dr. Donahue pastored churches in East Aurora ,NY and North Olmsted, Ohio. A native of Batavia, NY, Brad is a graduate of Batavia High School, Roberts Wesleyan College, Colagate Rochester Divinity School and Pittsburgh Theological Seminary.

Brad served in Army Reserve and the National Guard as both an enlisted solider and Commissioned Chaplain. During his pastorate at Christian Temple the church has transitioned from a programmatic church to an incarnational church where ministry is done not in the meeting rooms but with the people of the community.

Our Food Ministries

Lorain Christian Temple is located in a community where poverty and food scarcity  is a reality of every day life.

In response to this need, God has granted us the ability to host two ministries focused on reliving dood scarcity.


We host an every Wednesday Morning Community breakfast from 9:00 am until 10:00 am.

On the Second Wednesday of the Month we house a evening choice pantry. Doors open at 5:30 pm.


On the Fourth Sunday of the month , a neighboring church provides a community lunch.


On the Fifth Sunday of the month, Christian Temple provides a community lunch.

All  food ministries are done in partnership with Second Harvest.
