SPEAKERS: Dr. Samuel Stephens & Rebecca Stanley
Dr. Samuel Stephens leads the India Gospel League, an indigenous ministry organization. IGL’s extensive ministry in 3 Asian countries covers the areas of missions, rural development, education and health outreach to children.
Sam holds a D.Min. from George Fox University, U.S.A. His commitment to the advancement of the gospel, coupled with his desire to see sustainable transformation in poverty-stricken areas where the gospel has not penetrated the culture, has led him to be involved in ministry efforts ranging from church planting to micro-credit lending initiatives, from the construction of a children’s hospital to the building of schools and skills training centers in rural communities throughout South Asia. Sam is also founder of The Sharon Cancer Center and General Hospital, the Non-Denominational Association of Interdependent Churches, and the Association of Indigenous Ministries.
Becky Stanley has been in ministry with the India Gospel League (IGL) for the past seventeen years. Her involvement with the ministry goes even further, to the time when she was a young girl working along side the IGL team during school breaks. She realized and accepted God’s call to serve children as a young adult. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in 2000 and just completed her Master’s in Organizational Leadership through Regent University. Following her undergraduate studies she committed herself to full time ministry. She is currently working toward her Doctorate at George Fox University.
She serves in the capacity of Director of IGL’s Children’s Ministries with a passion to reach the lost and underprivileged children of India. She is also involved with the rural and community development in the villages where the children reside both in India and Sri Lanka. Along with implementing and administrating child care and rural development programs on the field in India, Becky is also actively involved in connecting friends and partners in the west with IGL’s vision of touching lives and transforming communities for the sake of the gospel.
Becky is married to Isaac and has two children, Sarah and Joel. They make their home in Salem, India. Together they pursue a common vision and passion of impacting young lives for Christ.
