Engaging the World, One Program at a Time

Lorna Dueck M.A. ’15

With her M.A. in Evangelism and Leadership, Lorna Dueck M.A. ’15 feels more equipped than ever to serve as a faithful presence in Canadian media. Currently, she is the executive producer of the “Context with Lorna Dueck” show, an award-winning program airing on seven networks and seen Sunday mornings on Canada’s largest network, Global TV. 

“During 2017, our team explored everything from natural disasters to human rights abuses, war, famines, religious freedom, and politics,” Lorna notes. “My Evangelism and Leadership degree is a perfect combination for the public voice I find myself in.”

With over two decades of experience, Lorna also serves as the CEO of Crossroads Chris-tian Communication Inc. and YES TV. She is a regular commentator on faith and public life for Canada’s leading national newspaper, The Globe and Mail, and has traveled the world reporting on church-led responses to humanitarian crises.

Since living out her faith in a post-Chris-tian culture can be a challenge, Lorna seeks to ground her leadership in the spiritual disciplines of worship and Scripture meditation. With a B.A. in Religious Education and an honorary doctorate from Tyndale College and Seminary and additional honorary doctorates from Trinity Western University and Briercrest Seminary, Lorna’s educational background also bolsters her work.

At Wheaton, Lorna appreciated the chance to immerse herself in her studies as well as the opportunity to learn on site during her Chicago practicum and at Burning Man. 

“Being rooted through my M.A. in the methodology and history of how God has used evangelism has been so helpful,” notes Lorna. “Evangelism is deliberate, it must be fought for and practiced, and my M.A. showed me that.”
