Stan Meek

Stanley D. Meek was a pastor in the Church of the Nazarene serving congregations in Kansas, Texas, and Oklahoma. He also wrote many articles and a book "So You Want to Follow Jesus?" which was translated into Chinese and helped distribute that book through the underground church in China. Previous to his pastoral ministry, he served in the United States Air Force, earned a Bachelors degree from Bethany Nazarene College (1960), and taught high school English. He received his Master of Ministry from Southern Nazarene University in 1995. He was married to Patricia in 1951 and had three children Steve, Patty (Dobbs), and Bill.
