Pray for Stan Slade, Global consultant, as he takes on a new ministry with IM home office staff.November 9, 2011
Stan serves as a visiting professor and consultant globally. He has added a new role serving as Associate Executive Director for Program. His role on IM's home office staff will be to support, coordinate and supervise all staff working on program operations, whether they serve international partners or those in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
He is entering a new and non-traditional model of mission service, combining ongoing global consultant service with work on the staff team in Valley Forge. He will divide his time between his role as Associate Executive Director (80%) and a reduced schedule as Global Consultant (20%).
Stan says: “I love the direct contact of teaching internationally. So, it has been a surprise to hear God’s call to set aside part of that teaching in order to help IM become the most effective instrument for global mission that it can be. But, it is a privilege to be invited into this new role. First, as I have traveled the world these last four years, my admiration for my missionary colleagues and the partners they serve has continued to grow. It is a joy to work alongside them, and a privilege to be invited to serve them as part of IM’s very dedicated home office team. Second, my friends in regional and local church ministry have been telling me about the ferment God is bringing about in our national, regional and local life throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico. I hope to be more useful also to them in my new role. All of these friends and fellow disciples are great folks with whom to serve our missionary God.”
