Pianelius M. Foster-Howell ("Penny") was recently certified as  a Church Administrator, having completed the Church Administration Certification Program sponsored by Equipping Ministries (International Association of Certified Church Administrators). Church Administration is one of the critical foundational components for churches. It establishes safeguards, internal controls, team ministry, and necessary buffers for the Senior Pastor that enables the Pastor to thrive and survive in ministry. With her certification, Penny will be consulting with churches of various denominations to assist them in this essential area of ministry. This is a "first" in our McFamily, and Penny continues to be a credit to the family.  TO GOD BE THE GLORY".

Dr. Veronical McClurkin, pictured below, is truly "putting her money where her mouth is", as she and other like-minded Dentists are reaching out and sharing their blessings with the underserved of various parts of Africa. Veronical is President and founder of "Dentists Delivering Service", and a credit to, and personification of, the McFamily tradition of never forgetting where we came from, and "there but for the Grace of God...."   The entire McFamily joins in a collective well-deserved and hearty "CONGRATULATIONS and WELL DONE, Veronical, and our prayers will always be with you for the marvelous and selfless work you are doing". 


Dentists Delivering Service (DDS) was founded August 21, 2009, by a dentist that observed patients with various dental maladies while participating in a medical mission in Embu, Kenya.  These patients were unable to get emergency or routine dental care due to economics and geographical location.

During the Embu mission, Dr. Veronical McClurkin encountered a female patient suffering from a facial growth of dental origin for more than 15 years.  Along with her co-worker, Dr. Lynda Mixon, fees for surgery and post operative care were paid in full to Embu Hospital for removal of the patient’s cervical tumor.  It was then Dr. McClurkin decided to form an organization to deliver dental services to those unable to access dental health care.

Dentists Delivering Service is a non-profit organization consisting of volunteers that travel to 3rd world countries to provide services in areas that have no infra-structure to support dental clinics or offices.

December 02, 2009, DDS completed a two week mission in Kisii, Kenya.  More than 100 people received treatment for dental emergencies. In 2010, DDS will travel to Nairobi, Kenya to provide preventive and basic preventive dental health to more than 200 orphans of Motherly Care Children’s Home.  The group will also deliver lectures on dental health and disease to several schools local to Embu, Kenya.  Click on the link below and enjoy the DDS Video.
