Rev. Geoffrey W. Donnan
& Mrs. Nancy Donnan
Fellsmere, Florida U.S.A.
Geoffrey Donnan is the founder of what is now called Reformation Christian
Ministries. It was originally begun in 1979 in Suriname, South America and was
called Caribbean Christian Ministries. At that time, the ministry was founded
under the oversight of their home church and has always remained under church
oversight since then. He is married to Nancy Donnan in 1968 and has two living
children, Kimarie Anne Card (nee Donnan) and Jason Donnan.

In 1986, the Donnans moved to Pompano Beach, Florida, the family
joining Coral Ridge Presbyterian
Church, in neighboring Ft. Lauderdale, where they became actively
involved. Through previous contact with Raul Montes, with the consent of his
overseeing church, a local board of advisors was established. In 1988, that
became a board of directors for the ministry (then still known as Caribbean
Christian Ministries). From there, the board gradually grew until it was
incorporated as a not-for-profit church in 1996 with the name Reformation
Christian Ministries Church, Inc. The ministry found that a clumsy name and
eventually sought legal recognition by requesting a legal fictitious name of
Reformation Christian Ministries.
1998, RCM moved to Fellsmere, Florida, where it has built an office and second
residence. Rev. Donnan is the founding pastor and now co-pastor of
King's Reformed Presbyterian Church in Palm
Rev. Donnan received his Bachelor of Business Administration
degree from the University of Kansas in 1966, received a Master of Religion from
Whitefield Theological Seminary and later a Master of Divinity from Reformation
International Theological Seminary. He presently is the President and
Executive Director of RCM and also serves on it Board of Directors.

Mrs. Donnan was received her elementary education through sixth grade in a
one-room school house in Osceola, Michigan (now part of Calumet, Michigan in the
Upper Peninsula not far from Copper Harbor and Houghton-Hancock). This
education became very useful to her as she began homeschooling their two
children and later as she taught in the school in Suriname (at one time handling
five high school level grades with 15 students covering more than twenty
subjects). After graduating from high school she worked as an assistant to
a U.S. Congressman and also in the banking business. All these skills
became useful in her various roles in the growth of her husband's ministry,
though her primary calling has been that of a mother and now grandmother.
She presently teaches piano to seven of her nine grandchildren along with her
work at RCM primarily in the bookkeeping areas.
