Meet Pastor Stanley J. Davis
Hi, I’m Pastor Stan and I’m blessed to part of the team here at MHCC. I joined in December of 2015, as the Helps/ Care Pastor. Now I am serving as your Missions Pastor.
I am here to be there for you. I started my ministry out at Mount Hope Church in Lansing as a “Care” Pastor over seeing counseling (premarital, marital, grief, and any other situation that might arise. Long and short of it is that I am here to help you walk through any situation that you might find yourself facing. The “Helps” side of the slash relates to my role as it pertains to the church, I am here to lend a helping hand anyway that I can, to help the Pastor accomplish what the Lord has laid on her heart to do, here in the church and out in the community.
Things that influenced who I am:
I am the youngest of five, (if you have read Kevin Lemon’s “Birth Order” you might gain some insight into my humor.) I spent the formative years of my youth just south of the township of Paradise, (which is located in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula) spending my days swimming in Lake Superior or running through the Hiawatha national forest. Those years planted seeds that later found their way into my first Novel, “Through Glass Darkly.”
On to more important facts:
I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savor just a few weeks before I was married to Denise, back in 1985. It was at the time that I also felt the call to enter ministry. Over the Last 35+ years we have been blessed to raise three wonderful kids who have all entered marriage and have blessed us with two wonderful son-in-laws and a wonderful daughter-in-law. They have also made us grandparents 7 times over.
I have worked not only in the church as a counselor but I spent 8 years counseling and helping troubled youth, an experience that I found both rewarding and eye opening.
So now here I am, hopping to be a help to you also.
