Dr. Stan A. Toler is a general superintendent in the Church of the Nazarene with an office at its Global Ministry Center in Lenexa, Kansas, USA. He was chosen for the highest elected office in the two million member denomination in July 2009, after serving for 40 years as a successful pastor in Ohio, Florida, Tennessee, and Oklahoma.
Dr. Toler served as vice president for John C. Maxwell’s INJOY Leadership Institute for more than a decade, teaching seminars and training church and organization leaders and major corporation leaders, nationally and internationally. Maxwell calls Toler “Mister Relationship.” He says, “Stan Toler has the uncanny ability to see the humor in any situation, capture it in his imagination, and then recount it with the grace and style of a southern storyteller.”
Over one million have attended his seminars. Renowned motivational speaker Zig Ziglar once said of Toler, “He teaches principles and procedures that will build a church, a home, a business, a community, or a nation.”
In addition to his worldwide administrative duties, Toler is a best-selling author of nearly 100 books, including Practical Guide to Pastoral Ministry; Giving Living, Total Quality Living, ReThink Your Life, and his popular Minute Motivator series. Over million copies of his books have been distributed worldwide.
Stan Toler speaks from his vast leadership experience, as well as from his personal experience—overcoming such obstacles as being raised in an impoverished West Virginia community, suffering the loss of his father in an industrial accident, and leading his family through a major health crisis. Toler has been called a “pastor to leaders,” but all who know him consider him a “best friend.”
Stan and his wife, Linda, an educator and author, reside in Oklahoma City, OK. They have two married sons and four grandchildren.
