Director of Education Ministries

Donna HitchnerDonna Hitchner

Donna oversees all Christian education/formation programs, from nursery through adult level.  Her passion is helping others experience and share the same love that was demonstrated by Jesus, the Christ.

One area of personal concern is encouraging members of the church family to participate in social justice ministry opportunities.

Donna holds a Master of Education degree in Exceptional Children from the University of Delaware, an unconditional K-8 teaching certificate from the State of New Jersey, and a State of Delaware teaching certificate in secondary English instruction.  She came to the church staff from a public school education background in Cecil County, Md.

Donna taught as an adjunct instructor at Delaware Technical and Community College in the mid 1990s. In addition, she has worked for the past 14 years in the field of adult education, including two years teaching English at the James H. Groves Adult High School (Newark site) and 12 years of online English instruction for Delaware’s Diploma-At-A-Distance program. She serves on the English Committee for Delaware’s Center for Distance Adult Learning.

Please feel free to visit Donna in the Christian Education office at your convenience to discuss curriculum and program ideas or anything else of concern. She may be reached by phone at 302-368-8774, x225 or by email.
