February 17 - 19
Rev. Dal Stanton and Beth Stanton
Our 2023 Mission Conference will focus on the theme "So Send I You," focusing on the Lord equipping servants for mission:
"As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you." (John 20:21)
At our 2023 Mission Conference, our speaker, Rev. Dal Stanton, missionary with the PCA's Mission to the World (MTW) will speak to us about how the Lord equips believers to do the important work of missions. Missionaries are not super-Christians; they are believers who go out into the world to find the lost and bring them to the Lord. Dal is a graduate of Covenant College (B.A.) and Reformed Theological Seminary (M.Div.), and has served with MTW since 1992.
Dal and Beth were married in 1977 after meeting at Covenant College and have 5 “out of the nest” children. After church planting in the US, their adventure with MTW began in 1992 serving in Ukraine, followed by a few years in Spain to re-establish the Madrid Church Planting Team. The Stantons served in Bulgaria, where Dal was the team leader and both Dal and Beth helped to facilitate the “Daughters of Bulgaria,” an organization combating human trafficking and sexual explotation of Bulgarian women.
The Stantons were poised to return to Kyiv, Ukraine to assist with church planting when the war between Russia and Ukraine broke out in February 2022. Their plans were put on hold and they went to Poland to assist those fleeing the war. Asked, what is your passion? “We desire to touch real and hurting people, who are impacted by the real and living Gospel in our lives.”
