Stan returns to Rockmont after 22 years in pastoral ministry, the last fourteen as pastor of Northside Baptist Church in Clinton, Mississippi. Rockmont is where he first discovered gifts to lead and a calling to serve. Joining the staff in 1980 as a Junior Counselor, he worked until 1994 as Tribal Director, Mountain Camp Director, and Program Director. Stan is a graduate of Furman University, Duke Divinity School, and Fuller Theological Seminary. He believes there is something central to the gospel about calling, celebrating and leading young people. Stan is married to Jennifer, a high school math teacher, and they are the parents of Jane and Kate. They like to hike, cycle, throw frisbees, shell peas, and eat well.
