Stan has developed and implemented several strategies for sharing church news, inspirational and doctrinal material, both inside the church and for the public. In January 2012, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) announced that it has approved the Adventist Church’s Hope Channel for broadcast on cable TV throughout Canada as a result of Stan’s vigilance. He has also played an important role in the partnership between Voice of Adventist Radio (VOAR) and the repeaters in British Columbia.
The SDACC Board of Directors has taken action to create the position of communications director for the Church in Canada. In doing so, the Board and church leadership recognize the significant need to provide many resources to share our faith and news of Adventism throughout Canada. Stan’s involvement with broadcast media and electronic means of communication make him an ideal person to lead this area of the church’s ministry. Stan plans to build on the excellent and award-winning foundation that has been laid by those who have served the church previously as editors of the Messenger. We welcome him as he returns to Oshawa to take on this important ministry of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Canada.
