About the Instructor: Pastor Stan Key

Stan Key speaks frequently in churches, conferences, retreats, and camps both here in the U.S. and abroad. Stan’s education includes an M.Div. degree from Asbury Theological Seminary and a Th.M. degree in Missions from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He has completed additional graduate work at Asbury Theological Seminary in the E. Stanley Jones School of World Missions and at the Faculté Libre de Théologie Evangélique in Vaux-sur-Seine, France. After serving churches in Virginia, Kentucky, and Illinois, Stan and his family served for ten years as church-planting missionaries in the suburbs of Paris, France. From 1994–2012, Stan was the senior pastor of Loudonville Community Church in Albany, NY. Stan joined the staff of the Francis Asbury Society in 2013 and was named president a year later. He serves as editor of The High Calling newsletter and authored The Last Word (Warner Press, 2015), a study on the book of Revelation, and Marriage Matters (Francis Asbury Press, 2017). Stan also serves as the spiritual dean for the Pan-African Academy of Christian Surgeons (PAACS) and is a member of the boards of One Mission Society and Sammy Tippit Ministries. Raised in Georgia, the son of a Methodist preacher, Stan came into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ while he was a student at Asbury College. It was there he met Katy, to whom he has been married since 1977. They have three children and six grandchildren.

Why This Matters

The situation is dire on a global scale. According to the World Health Organization (W.H.O.), the world needs seven million more healthcare professionals to meet for a minimum standard of patient care worldwide. 57 countries are at a crisis point, with fewer than 2.3 nurses, doctors and other medical personnel for every 1,000 people – too few to deliver even the most basic level of care. And the gap between number of patients and number of healthcare professionals is poised only to grow.
