Rev. Lorna Mullings



Reverend Lorna Janice Mullings emigrated to the United States of America in 1986 from the Caribbean Island of Jamaica. As a child growing up in Jamaica, she excelled in school receiving merit cards along with excellent report cards.

As a young adult, she devoted herself and life in serving the Lord.  She spent thirteen years in the banking industry. She later married, Archbishop Dr. Sidley Mullings, while still living in Jamaica. She earned her theological training at The Jamaica Theological Seminary, now known as The Caribbean Graduate School of Theology, Kingston, Jamaica.

When she migrated to the United States of America in 1986, she traded her thirteen-year career in banking for nursing, for which she had a passion.  She was so driven that she returned to the classroom to pursue her dream. June of 1992, she graduated from Saint Joseph College earning her first Bachelor’s Degree in nursing. In the year 2002, she graduated from Hunter College with a double Masters in Nursing and Public Health. Her major concentration was on HIV/AIDS, but during her Masters studies she did course work on health disparities among developed and developing countries.

The course work led her to believe that she had a special calling to become a missionary nurse. This motivated her to form the Dorcas Medical Mission in 1999 and to do her first mission in September of 2000. As of today’s date, she has spearheaded and lead over twenty missions, bringing free dental, medical, surgical, food and clothing to thousand of needy people in the regions of The Caribbean, West Africa, South Africa Central and South America and within the United States of America.

Lorna Mullings has worked as a nurse and served in the ministry with her husband for many years. She is the mother of two children and the grandmother of one. She is well respected for her humanitarian works and charitable outreach. She was awarded a humanitarian award “Women Who Dare To Be Different” by Congressman, Edolphus “Ed” Towns in March 2008.
