Stan Toler's Bio:
Stan Toler serves as senior pastor of Trinity Church of the Nazarene in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and hosts the television program "Leadership Today."

Dr. Toler trains pastors and church leaders throughout North America. He conducts seminars on strategic planning, stewardship, outreach, and leadership.

Raised in a rural mountain community in Welch, West Virginia, Stan knew at an early age that God wanted him to be a full-time minister. He adopted this role with a youthful zeal and, at the age of seventeen, became pastor of Westside Church in Newark, Ohio.

Since then, he has pastored some of the fastest-growing churches in Ohio, Oklahoma and Tennessee and has traveled around the world helping churches and missions organizations develop plans for growth.

Stan has authored multiple books and manuals on the subjects of church ministry, evangelism and "helps" for pastors. He communicates his zeal for touching lives through the ministry of the Church with witty enthusiasm and practical insight.

In his many roles of service, Stan finds his constant support and joy in his lovely wife, Linda, whom he affectionately refers to as his"South Georgia Peach." He shares his love for sports with his two sons, Seth Aaron and Adam James. Seth is married to Marcy.
